AECOM Hunt served as construction manager for the Mayo Clinic Proton Therapy Facility, a 165,000-square-foot, three-level radiation oncology proton therapy facility.

This project featured four, 180-degree gantry treatment rooms, one fixed beam treatment room, an MRI, two CT Simulation Scanners, a Linac Vault and a 14,000-square-foot expansion to Mayo’s existing central energy plant.

The clinic’s 7,100 square feet of exterior glass and glazing allows for maximum utilization of Arizona’s sunny weather. The well-lit, wide hallways throughout the facility were designed and built to be safe and easily accessible for people with limited mobility, and the large open treatment rooms provide a relaxed and comforting environment for proton beam treatment.

The building’s concrete foundation and structure are comprised of 50,010 cubic yards of concrete with 5,430,000 pounds of rebar reinforcements. This unique facility’s deep foundations consist of 230 caissons poured from 11,500 cubic yards of concrete, equal to 40,250,000 pounds.
