Our client’s vision was to add an Imaging Center in an Ambulatory Surgery Center that also housed clinics. We had designed several MRI spaces on the main level of buildings, but to have one on the second floor was more of a challenge. The existing structure had to be supplemented to accommodate the additional weight. We designed the space so the MRI could come directly into its final resting place via an exterior window.
Installation of an MRI unit on the 2nd floor of an existing building
Designing for an MRI is a challenge in itself, but to have one installed on a second floor of a building is exceptionally demanding. This project required coordination among contractors, riggers, and security so that other offices in the building remained unaffected. Ireland Architects orchestrated the coordination beautifully with no problems or delays.
