Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, has announced that the HOPE Tower at Jersey Shore University Medical Center (JSUMC) in Neptune, New Jersey, has been awarded the Alliance for Action’s 2018 Distinguished Engineering Award.
Dewberry 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.
The tower, which opened in June 2018, 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.
