The George Washington University Hospital Radiation Oncology Center

Washington, DC
Overview

The George Washington University Hospital Radiation Oncology Center was a challenging interior renovation delivered through integrated project delivery. The integrated project team comprising the Owner, designers, general contractor, and subcontractors built two new state-of-the-art linear accelerator vaults, a CT scanner room, patient exam rooms, and office and administrative space in the new center. 440 cubic yards of concrete were poured for structural support in the garage below the center, and for radiation shielding. Construction took place in an occupied building in compliance with a strict noise limit, and structural reinforcements were made inside an operational parking facility on the GW campus. 

The project team, consisting of WJ Architects, engineering firms CCRD and Walter P Moore, UHS, the George Washington University Hospital, and HITT practiced lean construction principles as prescribed by the IPD delivery model, reducing waste and maximizing group-think. The team faced a tight schedule, which was addressed through extensive upfront planning that streamlined construction, reduced redesign, and accelerated closeout.
