New MRI Suite, Royal Glamorgan Hospital
Client: Cwm Taf University Health Board
Services Provided: Project Management, Architecture, Structural & Civil Engineering, Mechanical & Electrical Engineering, Cost Management, CDM Coordinator
Brief: To extend the existing MRI Suite, creating a self-contained unit accommodating a new Siemens Scanner. To create two new patient changing rooms and a dedicated recovery area, as well as completely refurbishing the existing suite.
Project Characteristics: The timescale for completion of the project was extremely tight (6 months). During this period Planning Consent was obtained, the original scanner removed, a temporary scanner provided and the construction contract tendered and completed in time to deliver and commission the new scanner.
Close liaison with hospital staff, the main contractor, specialist suppliers and the design team was key to the successful completion of the project, despite the short timescale and very challenging winter weather conditions.
