MRI Scanner Building Royal Hampshire County Hospital
On 9th December 2011 a fire broke out in the building housing a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner and a computed tomography (CT) scanner at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester, seriously damaging the building and destroying the scanners.
Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust appointed The Practice and within 11 weeks, a detailed layout had been agreed, a planning application submitted, and construction tenders invited.
The MRI and CT scanners suppliers were responsible for the supply and installation of their equipment but also the fit-out of the rooms in which they would be located. The Practice was tasked with coordinating this work with that of the main contractor, as all had to run concurrently if deadlines were to be met.
The sensitive use of materials, colour and natural light is particularly important to patients due to the feelings of claustrophobia that can be experienced whilst undergoing scans – the MRI scanner room has curved internal corners and calming multi-coloured ambient lighting which can be varied to the patient’s choice.
