Notice of Requested Architectural Services

Notice is hereby given of the commencement of the selection process for the architectural services for the programming phase of the University of Kansas Cancer Center (KUCC) at the University of Kansas Medical Center. We are proposing construction of the KUCC within a single building. Program areas within the proposed new facility will include Vivarium Space, Wet and Dry Research Laboratories, as well as space for future use. The building will be located north of 39th street between parking garage 5 and parking garage 4 and just to the east of the HSLIC building. The KUCC will be connected with elevated pedestrian walkways to adjacent buildings and existing pedestrian walkways including HSLIC, Parking Garage 5 and Cambridge Tower A. Working in an academic medical center setting, nationally and internationally renowned investigators conduct pivotal research that propels science forward, leading to improvements in cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. These intense efforts are crucial to KUCC’s most important mission: Making research discoveries that will lead to the best possible outcomes for patients. Successful programming phase may lead to the firm being retained for design and construction phase services.

The project scope, budget, schedule, and architectural program statement remain subject to the approval of the Kansas Board of Regents. The construction budget for this project is $250,000,000.
