New Cancer Center
IMEG provided engineering design and services for Aurora Medical Center’s new, LEED Silver cancer treatment center. The single-story, 29,000-square-foot center includes 15 exam rooms, 15 infusion bays, a linear accelerator, PET CT, CT, and pharmacy. Future expansion provisions will consist of a single-story expansion and an additional linear accelerator.
The project met a number of energy conservation goals, including saving over 14 percent in energy cost compared to a baseline code building. Strategies utilized to achieve the goals included high-efficiency boilers, LED lighting, an energy recovery chiller and high-efficiency fans.
Low-flow urinals and lavatories as well as dual-flush water closets allowed the building’s water usage to be reduced by over 20 percent compared to a similar building.
Occupant comfort was a focus for the infusion bays, with thermal comfort, indoor air quality, and daylighting all utilized to improve the patient experience.
