Stratford Engineering was selected to serve as the engineer of record for this new LEED certified ambulatory care center in Monmouth County, New Jersey for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. A circa -1984 three-story vacant office building of approximately 285,000 square feet will be repaired and retrofitted to meet modern seismic requirements to house the facility. Using the latest engineering software and BIM modeling, Stratford Engineering provided its services for both the design and construction phases of this project. Core scope includes MEP infrastructure and vertical circulation elements, including three new elevators and two new exit stair towers to be located to optimize patient flow and reduce impact of egress passageways on ground floor program space. New building additions include two new LINAC vaults located at the perimeter of the building, relocation and expansion of the loading dock to accommodate full-sized trucks at a mid-building location, new ambulance pick-up with covered canopy and vestibule, and a pedestrian bridge and entry canopy as a new means of access to the facility. In addition, a new courtyard was created by precisely cutting 11,000 square feet of the existing structure and reinforcing the opening with braced frames and horizontal cross bracing at two new pedestrian links that tie the two wings. Lastly, the project included design and coordination for a new data center to be used by a nationally recognized Fortune 500 technology leader.
The Monmouth project embodies MSKCC’s most recent expansion of their region ambulatory care centers. Its purpose is to augment the main hospital’s research and inpatient capabilities while providing convenient services to New Jersey’s outlying communities. Services include diagnostic, treatment, ambulatory surgery and rehabilitation.
