Fairfax, Va. — The Jersey Shore University Medical Center (JSUMC) held a ribbon cutting ceremony in June for its new 10-story HOPE Tower on the center’s east campus. The tower provides a healing outpatient experience for the community, a cancer center, advanced imaging technologies, research services and medical education programs, faculty physician offices, an amphitheater, and a high-tech simulation laboratory.

Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, provided surveying; site/civil, geotechnical, and traffic engineering; and landscape architecture and environmental services for JSUMC’s new $265 million development. The 300,000-square-foot facility includes the HOPE Tower and a nine-level parking garage with more than 1,500 parking spaces. The firm also supported JSUMC with demolition of a senior housing complex that occupied the development site and offsite water, sewer, and roadway improvements to support the development.

Hackensack Meridian Health and JSUMC co-hosted the ceremony, which included Dewberry employees and community members who gathered to celebrate the completion of HOPE Tower.

In addition to Dewberry, EYP Inc. provided architecture for the project; B R + A provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services; and Walter P Moore provided structural engineering. LF Driscoll served as the construction manager, with Stantec as the project manager.
