Walter P Moore: Texas Center for Proton Therapy

Serving the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, the Texas Center for Proton Therapy uses advanced technology to treat cancer with a precise “pencil beam”  of  protons  delivered  at  two-thirds the speed of light from an accelerator half a football field away. Walter P Moore exhibited engineering excellence in two key ways: by developing an innovative, high-performing hybrid foundation system and by serving as a fulcrum between the technical requirements of the specialty consultants and the practical requirements of the builder. Patients can now get locally the quality cancer treatment previously accessible only with repeated 400-mile round trips to comparable but older facilities.
