MD Anderson Cancer Center Proton Therapy Center No. 2

Gilbane is the leader in proton therapy facilities having completed 7 proton therapy facilities nationally in the past ten years.

new Proton therapy center addition

Gilbane Building Company has been selected by MD Anderson for construction manager at-risk services for the Proton Therapy Center No. 2 project. This project is a free-standing addition to the existing proton therapy center which was built in 2004.

The Proton Therapy Center No. 2 will be approximately 74,000 SF once completed and is predominately a four-vault concrete structure with an attached structural steel clinical area and will be located adjacent to the existing Proton Therapy Center, with a service driveway separating the facilities at street level and a skybridge connecting the facilities.

The new project will construct four new gantries for Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy (IMPT) and will include the installation of new Hitachi equipment with the first gantry coming online within 19 months after the start of installation. The existing Proton Therapy Center will remain in operation throughout the project, requiring a coordinated effort to tie-in the future skybridge as well as utility connections, to minimize disruption to the existing facility.

With extensive experience in cancer center construction, working with over 50% of the nation’s top 20 cancer hospitals, Gilbane is positioned and uniquely qualified to deliver the highest quality proton therapy treatment facility for MD Anderson Cancer Center.
