Salt River Fields At Talking Stick Receives Honor From Architectural Record Magazine

 

Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, winner of a 2012 RED Award, has been named the winner of the 2013 Good Design is Good Business competition from Architectural Record magazine.

The award recognizes outstanding design accomplishment but adds recognition for the impact of how the project improves business performance, revenue and achievements. Salt River Fields at Taking Stick is the spring training home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies.

“We are humbled that Salt River Fields continues to receive awards three years after first opening,” said D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall. “The design by HKS, Mo Stein and the incredible amount of foresight, hard work and energy that went into creating the finest Spring Training facility in all of baseball continues to be recognized and for that, we are extremely grateful.”

Salt River Fields at Talking Stick opened in 2011 and is widely regarded as the top spring training site among the 30 teams in the game. The venue was named a finalist for “Sports Facility of the Year” by the Sports Business Journal and won “Ballpark of the Year” from Ballpark Digest, BaseballParks.com and Digitalballparks.com.

The facility won an AZRE magazine RED Award for Most Challenging Project in 2012.

As a LEED Gold certified facility by the U.S. Green Building Council, Salt River Fields was the first venue of its kind in the U.S. The two-team facility, built by Mortenson Construction, has shattered every spring training attendance record for a shared complex. The D-backs have led all of baseball in individual team attendance (total and average) in each of its three years of existence.

Banner MD Anderson expanding

Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center on the Banner Gateway campus will break ground in January 2013 on an expansion of its outpatient cancer facility, offering a new service and additional equipment and treatment areas to meet the needs of its rapidly growing patient population.

The 111,000-square-foot expansion will take place to the south of the existing 130,000-square-foot building and will add:

·  Three linear accelerators (two at opening and one vault for future use) for a future total of six, used for external beam and internal radiation treatments
· 30 additional clinic exam rooms for a total of 60 rooms
· 13 additional infusion bays for a total of 53
· Expansion of Laboratory Intake Center and Welcome Center
· The Cox Center for Integrative Oncology and Cancer Prevention, funded in large part by a grant from the James M. Cox Family Foundation
· Dedicated space for the Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy program
· Additional shell space for future expansion needs

“We’re proud to be living our vision of providing premier cancer services in the Valley,” said Todd Werner, CEO of Banner MD Anderson. “Our patients deserve nothing less than the best care and treatment options available.”

Banner MD Anderson will break ground on the $62.6 million expansion project on Jan. 22. The newly added area will open in spring 2014.

“We’re excited that we can expand our facilities and in turn, serve more people,” said Maggie Row, vice president of clinical operations for MD Anderson Cancer Network. “We look forward to enhancing our services in partnership with Banner Health and continuing to elevate the quality of care available in Arizona.”

Since opening in 2011, the cancer center has experienced rapid growth in outpatient volume. The center’s model of multi-disciplinary care, coupled with its relationship with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, has attracted more than 5,000 patients and resulted in 50,000 patient visits since opening. In addition, more than 50 subspecialty physicians are now providing cancer care to patients in need.

The new Cox Center for Integrative Oncology and Cancer Prevention will incorporate traditional cancer treatments with evidence-based integrative therapies, such as relaxation techniques to aid in pain and/or stress management. The center will include individualized prevention, screening and diagnosis programs, rehabilitation and community outreach programs, and will also be an invaluable community resource for cancer prevention education.

Project architects are HKS, Inc. and the general contractor is DPR Construction.
