Comprehensive Cancer Center


With the growing necessity for Health Care in Puerto Rico, the UPR, in conjunction with the Municipality of San Juan, decided to create a Hospital with cancer patients in mind. The Comprehensive Cancer Center consists of a 280,000 sq ft project that encompasses research facilities, hospital beds, surgical areas, outpatient clinics, chemotherapy spaces, and high-tech equipment among other facilities. This project was designed to be a LEED Certified Building. One of the more interesting design decisions was the use of a prefabricated façade. The idea being that by developing a prefabricated concrete curtain wall system, the cost would diminish due to minimized on-site labor, the repetitive formwork use, and the shorter construction schedule, while at the same time achieving higher quality construction. This beautiful architectural project was developed in conjunction with Hillier, an architectural firm from New York City.
