Designed by Pashek Associates, Ltd., and built by Eisler Landscapes and Landau Building Company, the Mario Lemieux Center for Blood Cancers 4th Floor Terrace Garden received a Silver Award for Acute Care in the 2013 Landscape Architecture Awards for Healthcare Environments. The roof is located six stories above Center Avenue in a very congested urban environment, an additional challenge for the installation crew. The project included over 1500 sf of green roof, 1420 sf of bluestone patio paving, and a variety of shrubs, perennials, sedums and grasses.
