New MRI Facility
Extension & Refurbishment
– Tullamore Hospital.

The Midland Regional Hospital in Tullamore is a modern live acute hospital campus. After a successful prequalifying and tender process we were selected as the preferred tenderer for the project based on both our experience and also commercial offering.

Project Details

The project consisted of a new MRI scanner, control room, Tech room, plant room, coms room, five bay recovery area, Anaesthetic prep area, three ultrasound rooms, consultants offices, waiting areas, changing areas and reception area.

The MRI & Ultrasound Department is attached to the side of the existing X-Ray & CT department and below the operating theaters. The project consisted of five different tie in points and also remodeling of the existing hospital corridors. All M&E services also had to be tied into the existing hospital services. The chilled water had to be brought from the existing roof plant room to the MRI plant room in order to serve the new MRI scanner. Significant existing services had to be diverted prior to any construction works commencing on site. All hospital interfaces were agreed thought a strict method statement procedure. A method statement tracker was issued at each progress meeting to track the status of submitted method statement and also one that were pending.

This project consisted of all of the issues associated with working on a live acute medical campus. Our Team and company management systems ensured that the project was delivered on time and achieved all BCAR requirements.
