CIO-CHU - Liège


The project consists of the construction of a new building housing an integrated oncology centre (IOC) and all clinical analysis laboratories on one site. The IOC is an outpatient tumour treatment centre with an interdisciplinary structure serving cancer patients, promoting the interaction of all available skills (technical, clinical and research skills) in one location. The centre includes medical-technical platforms, supporting the heavy equipment of radiotherapy, nuclear medicine and a radiology unit. The new building also includes clinical areas for oncology consultations, the day hospital, the offices of oncology physicians and data managers, and the clinical and translational research unit.

The upper levels were designed with TT-type hoists to span spans of 14.40 m, as these levels require column-free spaces. For the lower levels, a mushroom slab - column system was used to maximise the available ceiling height, while maintaining a comfortable ceiling height. A 50-metre-long connecting corridor was constructed between the new and existing buildings.

Since 1998 Franki has been part of Willemen Groep, the largest family construction group in Belgium.
