In Spring 2024 the new Dyson Cancer Centre at Royal United Hospitals, Bath opened its doors. The Centre is supported in part by a £4m donation from The James Dyson Foundation to create a cancer services hub for half a million people in the South West of England.

During the construction, a great deal of the building-works have been carried out on the building façade by specialists, Regency Facades.

Our VitraFix® VF1 rainscreen subframe systems has been installed onto the building for both the vertical wall and soffit areas (carrier rails, brackets and all fixings) which provide the support for the cladding panels.

Two panel types from our rainscreen cladding range have been used on the buildings façade: VitraDual®, which is a cladding panel made from aluminium and our natural-looking fibre cement cladding panel, Ceramapanel® – both products achieve A1 fire rating to BS EN 13501-1.

It’s been fantastic to have been involved in a project where there’s more than one panel type being used which adds extra detail and boosts the appearance of the façade. All of our products are non-combustible making them the obvious choice in any building project especially when safety is paramount to the hospital, patients and visitors.

The Dyson Centre is a world-class facility that will provide cutting-edge treatment for patients from across the region and will bring together the majority of the RUH's cancer services, including research, under one roof.

The new building will support staff to deliver the very best care, in the best environment. It’s been a privilege to have been involved and congratulations to everyone involved in the construction and for delivering such a fantastic end result including Kier Group, IBI Group and SBS Cladding Ltd.
