Needham, MA – JACA Architects teamed up with BOND Brothers recently in celebrating a ‘topping-off ceremony’ at the new Cancer Center & Surgical Pavilion at Beth Israel Deaconess in Needham.
Designed by JACA Architects and constructed by BOND Brothers, this three-story, 30,000sf building will fulfill the demand for high quality cancer care as well as the need for a surgery center in the western suburbs of Boston. The center will include radiation oncology and hematology oncology services, and is slated to open the Spring of 2014.
The building being constructed is located on the footprint of Beth Israel Deaconess, Needham’s former administration building, that was ceremoniously demolished in April 2013. In addition to the building, a new one-level parking deck is being built where the parking will continue to be free for all patients and visitors. The building will provide three new gardens as well as improvements to an existing garden on site.
On October 3, 2013, gatherers from JACA, BOND and Beth Israel joined together for the “Topping-Off Ceremony” on the site of the Western Suburban Cancer Center. During this ceremony, the final beam from the construction process was signed by those who participated in the progression, and was lifted to meet the rest of the structure.
