By using BIM, the contractor’s GMP pricing was $500,000 under project budget with no change orders for time or cost.
SSOE provided complete planning and design services to develop a new, full service cancer center. Developed by real estate investor Welltower (formerly Health Care REIT), the freestanding facility spans two floors and is situated on a 4.9 acre site.
To offset the feel of a high technology environment, SSOE’s design features exterior and interior colors and details, which create a warm, inviting setting for patients. The first floor contains a radiation oncology suite and common area. The suite will supports future construction of three new linear accelerator vaults, a CT simulator, CT / PET simulator rooms, and related support spaces. The second floor houses a large medical oncology suite, gynecology suite, additional oncology office, and common area.
The design integrates sustainable design principles, and the facility is LEED® Silver certified. Additional green features of the property include a healing garden with a walking path.
