This five storey building which has been designed with the needs of the patients, and modern cancer care in mind, with lots of natural light, open spaces and a rooftop garden that everyone is welcome to use. To ensure that the building is truly patient-focused, patients have been involved in both the design of the building and how the services operate within it. Hematology (diseases of the blood) services for cancer and non-cancer conditions were provided on the fourth floor of the Cancer Centre. This is because different hematological conditions require similar expertise and equipment, so it made sense for UCLH to provide services to both type of patients within the same unit. This model of care is replicated at other centers. The Centre is equipped with the very latest technology to help diagnose and treat cancer more effectively. Patients will benefit from the latest advances in imaging, with the arrival of the UK’s first PET MR scanner providing detailed images with less radiation exposure. It is likely that this state-of-the-art technology will be used to treat other diseases (such as neurological conditions) and for research purposes.

Cyril Sweets Associate Director Lead CDMC UK. Lead Safety Manager 2006 - 2008 Leading a team of 27 persons throughout UK ensuring corporate procedures and legal compliance throughout the structure. To reduce the risk of injury and promote job safety, many organisations we have to establish safety policies. We produced a study and gap audit to establish the areas of need and included a trend survey to indicate risk value. This study examined the presumed benefits of safety policies and the roles of two organizational variables (supervisor safety support and employee safety control) on safety outcomes and satisfaction with the company. Results showed that quality of the execution of corporate safety policies, supervisor safety support, and employee safety control play critical roles in predicting both injury incidence and satisfaction with the company. These findings highlight the importance of integrating both organisational safety policies and relevant organisational constructs to improve corperatel safety. Bluebell Hill Rail tunnel The moment will mark a milestone in construction of the 3.2km tunnel - the UK's first high-speed rail tunnel - over 100m below Bluebell Hill at the central point in the tunnel.

Network Rail Southeastern Line Ore Tunnel Repairs CDMC The work is taking place to improve the drainage and repair the lining inside to prevent water seepage. At the same time other work including upgrading points and signals to improve reliability, and the maintenance of bridges and tracks that could lead to higher line speeds will also be taking place. This work requires the closure of the line between Hastings and Ashford. Heathrow Airport Tunnels Refurbishment - CDMC The cargo tunnel is bi-directional; it has one bore, carrying one lane in each direction. Each lane is 12 ft (3.7 m) wide, with a clear height of 16 ft 6 in (5.03 m). The tunnel consists of approximately 625 m (684 yd) of circular bored tunnel plus 130 m (140 yd) of rectangular cut-and-cover tunnel at each end. Its total length is 885 m (968 yd). The bored tunnel segments are precast concrete, with a 33 ft 9 in (10.29 m) internal diameter and 12 in (30 cm) thick. The segments are expanded directly against the ground, which is London Clay. The bored section of the cargo tunnel is notable among tunneling engineers, for having been constructed with a remarkably thin cover of solid clay above it (minimum cover 1.2 m (3 ft 11 in) clay beneath the Terrace gravels). Brookson Engineering 1984 - 1993 Southend Sewage Treatment plant - Safety Manager Sewages and industrial effluents are complex liquors mainly comprised of water with varying amounts of a wide range of other substances dispersed throughout their bulk. These impurities vary greatly in both chemical and physical properties. No two sewages and industrial effluents are exactly alike, and a single sewage or effluent varies in composition continually. The impurities also vary greatly in their polluting effect should they be allowed to enter a water course. So it is important that we understand the nature of sewages and industrial effluents to enable assessments to be made of such things as polluting substances present and degree of treatment necessary. Treatment processes for sewages and industrial effluents have been developed specifically to deal with the various types of polluting substances present. It is therefore very necessary for reasons of plant design, efficient plant operation and treated effluent quality control, to understand the nature of raw sewages and industrial effluents Divisional Safety Advisor, ConocoPhillips Responsible for safety activities associated with White Oils, Aromatics, and Fluid Catalytic Cracking areas of the Humber Refinery.

Sewage Plant Colchester, Essex - CDMC Design began in 2010 Anglian Water treated the wastewater from an equivalent residential population of six million. This resulted in the plant at Colchester needing an upgrade to improve their capacity: a grand total of nine glass-fused-to-steel tanks were designed, manufactured and constructed by an in-house team, all complete with GFS and GRP roofs. The project also included one 1,580m³ BIODOME® double membrane gas holder and access steelwork with a 12m high staircase leading to a 22m long walkway providing access to the roofs of four HPH tanks. The sewerage treatment works is now capable of handling the high level of sludge piped directly to the site and also sludge brought in from other facilities in the area. Thanks to the anaerobic digestion process now in place the plant will be able to make use of the biogas produced during the sludge treatment process. The BIODOME® gas holder will hold and treat the biogas until its ready to be transferred in the combined heat and power engines where it will be converted into renewable energy and released to the national grid.
