Hammes Company projects featured in 2010 Architectural Showcase

BROOKFIELD, Wis., October 27, 2010 – Last month, The Center for Health Design, in conjunction with Vendome Group, named the facilities and project teams across the country included in this year’s Architectural Showcase. All named projects were reviewed by an extensive panel of architects, interior designers, and facility-based experts, each with a vast healthcare facility design background. Hammes Company’s projects were recognized and highlighted in the September issue of Healthcare Design magazine, which annually presents the entire Showcase.

This year, over 100 projects were included in the peer-appointed Showcase, organized by facility type such as critical access hospitals and emergency departments. Of those award-winning facilities, 21 were nominated for Citation Awards and three were ultimately chosen for that honor.

Hammes Company’s recognized projects were featured across several categories: Cancer Center, Ambulatory Care Center, Community Hospital and Medical Office Building, and Medical Center.

University of New Mexico Cancer Treatment & Clinical Research Facility - Cancer Center
Completed in 2010, this 206,000 SF academic cancer center located in Albuquerque, New Mexico stands as a major addition to the University of New Mexico (UNM) Health Sciences campus. In addition to managing the cancer center project, Hammes Company managed a major road improvement for UNM Health Sciences Center, adding a roundabout and traffic lanes to the existing hospital’s main traffic entrance. The project was awarded the Citation of Merit amongst all cancer centers named to this year's Showcase.
