Maggie’s gets royal seal of approval

Following the recent completion and opening of the Maggie’s Chris McGuigan Building at Velindre Cancer Centre, the new facility was visited by the Charity’s Patron, the Duchess of Cornwall on 4th July. As Quantity Surveyors on this innovative and much needed facility, RPA were invited to attend along with other construction partners who helped bring the Dow Jones Architect’s design to life.

This iconic building will offer a safe haven for patients and families for many years to come. The timber rich building enables patients to step inside and feel a world away from the challenges that cancer presents.

Director Nick Soady commented “it has been a real privilege to be part of such an important project, which despite several challenges, has seen all participants, work collaboratively to deliver an exceptional building to a high quality finish.”

 The unique design has attracted considerable attention, being recently featured on the cover of the RIBA Journal and has been shortlisted for a number of prestigious awards.
