Baylor Cancer Center
When your aim is to deliver the best healthcare engineering, you face big challenges and greater rewards. The Baylor Cancer Center in downtown Dallas proved to be no exception. This exquisite new LEED®-certified healthcare facility comprises 450,000 square feet of the largest outpatient cancer center and only dedicated cancer hospital in Texas. When completed, it will have 120 beds and serve as an expansion of the Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center. The center will provide a full range of cancer related services, including physician offices, radiation, chemotherapy, pain management and complementary medicine, such as massage therapy and support groups. This is the sort of engineering project that the ccrd team loves to get its arms around. It’s a project where engineering creativity constantly comes into play.
The ccrd healthcare engineering team was tapped to provide mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design services for this massive undertaking. Sustainability was at the forefront. The scope included an 1800-ton central plant, kitchen/cafeteria, several linear accelerators and imaging equipment.
The project anticipates LEED Gold certification under the Shell and Core Version 2.0. Baylor Cancer Center is scheduled to open in 2011 with a scheduled completion date of 2013.
