The 270,000 sf Duke Cancer Institute accommodates all of Duke University Health System's cancer programs and includes 125 exam rooms, 75 infusion stations, 25 clinic rooms, three linear accelerators, nine CT scanners and a fourth-floor rooftop terrace. Viewable from hundreds of patient rooms, the living roof garden on the fifth floor features a mix of greenroof plant species, mostly succulents on a pre-vegetated mat from Xero Flor America, selected to reduce the amount of unused stormwater collected from roof leaders.
