Challenge Design-Build Project Delivery Addressed
The owner chose design-build delivery for the Maryland Proton Treatment Center so that they would have single source accountability for the design and construction of the facility. Their goal was to minimize change orders and maximize coordination between design, construction and the proton equipment vendor.
The Maryland Proton Treatment Center (MPTC) is an 111,000-square-foot outpatient cancer treatment center. MPTC provides the world’s most advanced form of cancer treatment, proton therapy, and is only the eleventh such facility in the nation and the second to be delivered via design-build. It is situated on the edge of downtown Baltimore, Maryland as part of the high-tech University of Maryland Bio-Park campus.
