Aurecon provides engineering design for innovative health centre


Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer (incorporating the LIVESTRONG Cancer Research Centre), Adelaide, Australia

Integration with existing facilities creates an innovative health centre

  • Aurecon’s role: Building design
  • Client: SA Health

Aurecon provided engineering design for the Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer, incorporating the LIVESTRONG Cancer Research Centre, which is located within the Flinders Medical Centre, Adelaide Australia.

Located within the middle of a busy hospital campus, the project required a design that integrated with the existing hospital yet created minimal disruption to hospital operations during construction.

The facility opened in 2012 and houses more than 100 research and clinical investigators working collaboratively in orthodox medicine and holistic treatment methods to achieve more effective and faster results in cancer control.

A key feature of the centre is the integration of research across a number of basic disciplines and clinical sciences to support the rapid application of research findings to clinical practice.


The project has won the following award:

  • Finalist: Engineers Australia Engineering Excellence Awards 2012 – Buildings and Structures (SA)
