UCLH – Proton Beam therapy, London UK

Key Achievements

•Provided a full monitoring package during the construction of a new proton beam therapy cancer treatment hospital in central London.

•Supply monitoring data from different sources through one monitoring platform for a simple and efficient reporting method

The project

•Getec deployed a comprehensive structural and environmental monitoring solution right from the start throughout the whole job duration.
•Monitoring was required during demolition and the excavation of a 4000m2 20m deep basement. The basement is constructed using diaphragm walls with a perimeter of 310m and a 30m depth.

The challenge

•Demanding specification with data processing such as noise hourly and daily averaging, but also calculating horizontal tensile strain, deflection ratio and slopes of adjacent structures.
•Noisy works and potential movements of the existing structures and roads required alarm thresholds to be flagged up by email immediately to allow the works to be modified accordingly.

The solution

•Getec’s own Quickview web viewer was provided for viewing the data for the project. Getec worked closely with the client to add new features to assist with the reporting requirements.
•Our recommendation was based on good value, good advice and a desire to help the engineering team to get a workable solution.
