The University of Kansas Health System in Kansas City recently opened the first proton therapy facility of its kind in the state.
It has been recognized as the Judge’s Choice winner by the Association of General Contractors. The design and construction process was complex given that it had to expand vertically over an existing building.
Different firms such as Hoefer Welker architecture and Stantec architecture were involved in the project, which included non-traditional elements such as terracotta material chosen to match the red brick of KU Health System. LED lighting, and metal panels that allow removal and reinstallation.
