Baylor Cancer Center

The Baylor Cancer Center outpatient facility is a 10-story, 460,000-sq-ft structure with a facade that includes a mix of glass fiber reinforced concrete, stone, glass and metal panels. An additional 125,000 sq ft of parking is located on two below-grade floors.

The center will include four linear accelerator vaults, a high-dose radiation room, multiple X-ray rooms, an MRI suite, laboratories, research suites, infusion rooms, pharmacies, and multiple exam and treatment rooms. The facility has a self-supporting central utility plan and data rooms.

The public areas will include a full-service kitchen, dining room, gift shops and a chapel. The penthouse level features a complete conference center and auditorium. A radius sky bridge will connect the outpatient facility to the inpatient areas of the Baylor University Medical Center campus.

All mechanical, plumbing, fire sprinkler and electrical rough-in work is being coordinated through BIM to eliminate conflicts during installation.
