MSK Basking Ridge Regional Cancer Center Renovations
This project included two linear accelerator vaults, two control rooms, an electrical room, office space, and shell space. It was an extension of the treatment area previously built with two LINACs already in use. The construction of the treatment rooms consisted of lead and concrete so that the high-energy x-rays do not escape. The accelerator vaults are comprised of four foot thick concrete walls lined with two inch thick lead bricks with a four foot thick concrete roof deck that rises to nine feet at the main beam for the length of the addition. Thermowells were installed in the formwork to monitor the proper curing temperature of the concrete. The interior finishes were designed using Plybo wood planking on accent walls both outside and inside the treatment rooms. The treatment room ceiling is also Plybo with impregnated panels for the light fixtures and backlit wall accents as well as full height sliders for millwork. Stainless facia’s, returns, and base treatment were installed in the treatment room. The project consisted of renovating the third floor exam rooms for the Outpatient Cancer Care Center. This project involved time sensitive, off hour work that revolved around Memorial Sloan Kettering’s (MSK) hours of operation. Founded in 1884, MSK is the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center with 24 locations spread across the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area. It is renowned for its exceptional patient care and its dedication to innovative research.
