TYLin provided structural engineering services for a new five-story, 150,000-square-foot outpatient center designed to foster a new view of cancer patient care.

The LEED Gold certified center consolidates several existing clinics into one site and includes exam rooms; spaces for radiology, radiation oncology treatment, and infusion; a women’s clinic; a meditation space; and a pharmacy. This building brings together varied components, from the rooftop garden, to the first-of-its-kind Tomotherapy unit housed in a heavily shielded structure, to floor-mounted, vibration-sensitive imaging equipment.

As an active participant in the integrated design process, TYLin was able to contribute from the early LEED charrettes and carry that involvement through design coordination, specifications, and the implementation of the project goals in the construction phase.

The center demonstrates how the use of traditional structural components, when thoughtfully designed and specified in careful collaboration with the architect’s vision, can meet the owner’s sustainability goals.
