Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center - Bergen
With SBI’s technical and advisory solutions, Memorial Sloan Kettering is bringing exceptional cancer care closer to where people live and work.
SBI Consultants collaborated with Memorial Sloan Kettering to expand its regional network across the tri-state area, including the new MSK Bergen in Montvale, New Jersey. The new state-of-the-art facility enables MSK to fulfill its mission of bringing exceptional cancer care closer to where people live and work.
To create MSK Bergen, SBI provided cost estimating and cost management services for the complete adaptive reuse and renovation of a two-story, 110,000-square-foot former corporate office building into a sleek and modern cancer center that houses cutting-edge technology and modern healthcare design elements. The project also involved the addition of a 5,000 square foot radiation oncology suite, as well as extensive infrastructure and building system upgrades to support imaging and radiation oncology areas.
Beginning with the early stages of acquisition and development, SBI delivered budget validation and cost consultant services that continued through design development, construction documents, bidding and award, and construction administration. The challenging rebuild involved the complete demolition and reconfiguration of internal areas for patient care, reinforcement of the building’s structure, and the integration of outdoor spaces into the planning processes.
Completed in 2018, MSK Bergen provides the highest level of care to patients in a comfortable, convenient environment that meets the US Green Building Council’s LEED certification. The bucolic setting embraces the surrounding landscape with outdoor, park-like spaces for patients and caregivers to enjoy. The facility also features a pharmacy, a café and plenty of parking.
SBI’s expert cost management services enabled MSK Bergen to create a warm and inviting point of access to MSK’s signature quality of care and was completed on schedule and within budget.
