Cohen Architectural Woodworking has received the Award of Excellence by the Architectural Woodwork Institute (AWI) for its work with The University of Kansas Health System (TUKH) and its Cambridge Tower in Kansas City, KS. The AWI award is the premier honor given to companies in the millwork and custom woodworking industry. It is the sixth time the AWI has honored Cohen for woodworking excellence.

The Cambridge Tower A is an 11 story hospital tower that continues TUKH’s campus in Kansas City, Kansas. Approximately 500,000 square feet, the tower houses 220 private patient bedrooms, a floor of surgical suites and a floor of diagnostic imaging. The building is part of a master plan that fills a three city block campus. Cohen supplied the woodworking and fabrication for the facility, and architectural design was by Cannon Design in St. Louis.

The Cambridge Tower A houses surgical oncology, neurology, neurosurgery and ear, nose and throat services, and was designed to optimize patient outcomes. This required the creation of the proper healing environment as well as a space functional for staff. To that end, Cohen Architectural Woodworking fabricated decorative laminate wall paneling, wood wall paneling, a three form light valance and solid surface work area. The majority of the cabinetry is a walnut laminate to provide warmth to patient areas while giving a modern look. The tower also includes nurse station desks and admitting desks.

“We’re thankful for a team that keeps on winning. I teach our team that each day is a new day and we need to be better today than we were yesterday. This is evident in our work for The University of Kansas Health System as well as every project we produce,”
said Phillip Cohen, CEO of Cohen Architectural Woodworking.

Founded in 1982, Cohen Architectural Woodworking is a family-owned architectural woodworking firm headquartered in St. James, Missouri. The firm has won multiple awards including the Architectural Woodwork Institute’s Award of Excellence for six separate projects, the 2016 Small Business of the Year award from the Rolla Chamber of Commerce.

Cohen Architectural Woodworking has been named a recipient of the Award of Excellence by the Architectural Woodworking Institute (AWI) for its work with the Delbert Day Cancer Institute in Rolla, MO. This is the fourth time Cohen has received the AWI award.

The Delbert Day Cancer Institute (DDCI) at Phelps County Medical Center opened in 2017. It includes designated areas for radiation oncology, medical oncology, laboratory and imaging services, an infusion room, physician offices, and areas for a community conference center, retail space and café. Cohen supplied the woodworking and fabrication for the facility, and design was by BSA Life Structures in St. Louis.

DDCI is designed around the convenience and comfort of the patient and their family, and, to that end, Cohen fabricated maple wall dividers and nurses stations, as well as high pressure decorative laminate wall paneling, for the facility. Featured are on-stage and off-stage segregation between family/patient and staff/physician work centers. An on-stage/off stage module organizes spaces so patients do not see behind-the-scenes activities, and separate access is provided to exam rooms for patients and staff, all in support of a calming and reduced stress experience.

“Cohen Architectural Woodworking is proud to be recognized as an Award of Excellence recipient for our work at The Delbert Day Cancer Institute. DDCI is a special facility providing the upmost in care and comfort for those needing cancer treatment. We are excited to help bring the board’s vision to reality and provide a local facility to help meet the needs of their patients,” said Phillip Cohen, CEO of Cohen Architectural Woodworking.
