PEA designed the site for a Cancer Center that includes parking lots, lush garden areas, a sitting area with tables and chairs overlooking a pond and wooded area, pathways to other nearby garden areas, a live roof system, custom designed to provide a range of colors and textures throughout the growing season, and a rooftop garden to be used as a viewing area for chemotherapy patients while receiving their treatments. Sensitivity used during site design and grading allowed for the preservation of an existing stand of mature trees within the northerly parking lot and the preservation of two heritage oak trees near the main entrance.
