Project: Puerto Rico Comprehensive Cancer Center

Río Piedras

The new Puerto Rico Comprehensive Cancer Center, with approximately 52,000 square feet, will accommodate cancer research laboratories to promote basic sciences, clinical services and epidemiological research in cancer prevention and control in Puerto Rico. The Center seeks to be a comprehensive cancer center of excellence in cancer prevention, research, and patient services for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, with a primary focus on cancer in Hispanics and other minority populations. Built at a cost of $18.7 million, the construction was completed with only 90 days of delay. PGES’s responsibilities included procurement, contract negotiations and project inspection.
