The Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center consolidates several existing cancer clinics onto one site and includes exam rooms; spaces for radiology, radiation oncology treatment, and infusion; a women’s clinic; a meditation space; and a pharmacy. Other notable aspects of this building include the first-of-its-kind Tomotherapy unit housed in a heavily shielded structure and floor-mounted, vibration-sensitive imaging equipment.

Silman provided structural engineering services for the design and construction of this world-class facility. As an active participant in the integrated design process, Silman was able to contribute from the early LEED charrettes and carry that involvement through the design coordination, specifications, and during the implementation of the project goals in the construction phase. With features such as a rooftop garden, this project is LEED Gold certified.
