Project Description

Quandel Construction was selected to provide construction management services for UPMC Central PA’s new Medical Sciences Pavilion. The 75,000-square-foot building marks Quandel’s fourth consecutive project with UPMC Central PA. To accommodate the unique cyberknife, linear accelerator, and Toshiba’s first 3T MRI equipment for this facility, Quandel constructed heavily reinforced walls and floors in several areas of the complex. The cyberknife is one of 64 installed in the world.

The new three-story facility brings a number of the Hospital’s major services into one building. The Medical Sciences Pavilion provides comprehensive oncology services, including inpatient and outpatient radiation, as well as blood transfusion therapy. The facility also houses breast healthcare diagnostic imaging and private offices.

Quandel’s familiarity of our campus from previous projects over the past six years made them a natural choice to manage the construction of our new Medical Sciences Pavilion. This was a difficult project because we made so many changes along the way as physicians added their input on medical technology equipment. Quandel was excellent at adjusting to the changes and the project managers took everything in stride. They did their very best to keep delays at a minimum and took every step to ensure our patients weren’t being inconvenienced. The entire process was a fluid transition. We look forward to future engagements with Quandel.
