Scripps Cancer Support Services


Historic Renovations, Lab & Medical, Repositions
Scope Renovation/ Reposition

Complete interior and exterior renovation of a locally recognized historical building originally built in 1926 to support Scripps Hospitals’ growing need for nurses. Work on this San Diego Landmark took place in two phases:

  • Phase 1 focused on the restoration of the exterior façade, bringing a new, enhanced look to existing finishes while staying true to the original character of the building
  • Restoration of double hung wood windows, wood doors, ornamental precast concrete panels, installation of authentic clay roof tiles, structural retrofit of existing roof framing, plaster of deteriorated areas, and painting of the entire building exterior
  • Phase 2 required a complete buildout of the interior: new MEP systems and finishing of all new and existing finishes, serving the building appropriately for its new intended use as office space for Scripps administrative staff
  • The building now provides extensive cancer support services to patients and their family members

“Dempsey’s team worked together with myself and the healthcare facility I was representing as the most collaborative project team I have been a part of. They listened well to all of the hospitals’ concerns and desires and quickly familiarized themselves with the policies and requirements of working on a hospital campus. The ego which I have seen hamper so many other contractors was not present with Dempsey, instead, they actively worked to learn and succeed within the requirements. Dempsey was a great partner throughout this project and I received many expressions of commendation for both the quality of their work and their approach to partnering with the healthcare facility. I would highly recommend Dempsey and hope to work with them in the future.” – Dylan Williams, Construction Project Manager, Jacobs”
