MRI Scanner Replacement

The works include removal and replacement of the existing MRI Scanner and associated control equipment and cabling within Antrim Area Hospital. We initially decommissioned the existing scanner and removed the exiting chiller equipment. We installed the new external compound for the placement of new coolers and associated M&E Services and carried out minor demolitions to the existing building to allow for the installation of the new magnet. The new scanner was successfully installed by specialist sub-contractors, who liaised closely with us during the works. We installed a Faraday cage and metal sheeting into the ceiling area and completed general refurbishment activities including provision of new ceiling and new lighting, decoration, installation of flooring and new doors. The works were completed with all M&E service installations, modifications and associated attendances.

The works were successfully completed within a live hospital environment, taking into consideration staff, patient and visitor needs and peak periods such as visiting times.
