The expected date construction will be completed on the UNC Cancer Hospitals Physicians Office building is late April, according to Felicity Little assistant project manager for Martin Architectural, a subcontractor on the job. Drywall on the first floor of the Cancer Hospital itself began two weeks ago and all work is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2009.

The physicians office building is five-stories high and will supply additional space for the support staff. The Cancer Hospital will include a treatment facility, using both traditional and state of the art technology.

SKANSKA is the general contractor for the project, while local subcontractors on the job include Martin Architectural, Precision Walls, Engineering Specialties, LLVann and Bonitz. One of SKANSKA’s main goals is to make sure that the hospital satisfies green building requirements.
