Westferry Road Health Clinic
The project consists of the strip out of an office building and conversion in to a health facility. The unit will include an MRI scanner, CT scanner and x-ray facilities. They also have Physiotherapy facilities, ENT treatment area and a number of consultation rooms.
The building is being completely stripped and we are doing a complete remodelled floor plan with high end finishes. For us one of the difficulties was getting the MRI scanner into the building as it weighs over six tonnes and could only be bought in to the building through a window opening which is at first floor level on that elevation. We also had to strengthen the floor slab and install a steel frame as the existing slab was not capable of supporting the weight of the scanner.
