This will comprise ultrasound rooms, large administration areas with pneumatic tube, with smaller reporting rooms attached, reception counter backing on to a 30 person waiting room, PWD's, ambulant toilets, AS1428 compliant change rooms and staff room.
The facilities also consist of nuclear medicine; complete with control room and lead glass, x-ray with unistrut bracing for suspended equipment, CT scanning ability and mammogram rooms which have a shared control room, and all rooms impressively being lead-lined.
The expansion aspect of the project will house a new MRI machine and plant. Kane are also required to install extra structural steel within the existing medical imaging suspended slab for added support.
