Nason Construction provided construction management services for a four-story, 120,000 square foot Medical Office Building at Christiana Hospital. The new Helen F. Graham Cancer Center Pavilion will be able to better serve Christiana Care Health System’s cancer patients, the number of which grew from 6,000 in 2003 to over 110,000 in 2007.

The building expansion is located adjacent to the current Helen F. Graham Cancer Center and is connected by a glass-enclosed walkway and reflecting pool. It currently is home to doctor and surgeon offices, radiology and nuclear medicine, including MRI, CT, and PET/CT, multiple labs, surgical areas, research labs, administrative areas, and a pharmacy.

Site work included “Green” technologies in addition to a partial second floor roof garden.
