Cooper Cancer Institute in Camden Fitted for its Final Steel Beam

On September 12, the Cooper Cancer Institute in Camden was fitted for its final steel beam during the topping-off ceremony. The beam, which was painted in white displayed the words “Building Hope,” and was signed by the construction trades and Cooper's cancer team, symbolizing the sentiment behind the new cancer center to open in the fall of 2013. 

The $100 Million, four-story, 103,050 square foot building will provide a full range of specialists and cancer care services with the benefit of patients having all their medical needs in one place, including: radiology and radiation oncology, hematology/medical oncology, surgical oncology, urology and gynecologic oncology; chemotherapy infusion and laboratory space; and chemotherapy pharmacy. Abundant examination, treatment and procedure space throughout the new building will improve patient flow and access; and conference room and academic spaces will foster the team-approach to cancer treatment for which Cooper Cancer Institute is already well-known.

Birdsall Services Group (BSG) is providing a full range of engineering and consulting services on this project and was on site for the ceremony.  In conjunction with Francis Cauffman Architects, BSG provided the MEP and IT design and utilized Building Information Modeling (BIM).  Additionally, the building is under review for LEED status.
