Key Issues

The MRI Suite is located within a fully operational hospital building therefore regular liaison was key to manage noise and dust as well as the need to access this space to manage M&E services that serves the new unit.

Queen Mary’s is a live hospital and all works were completed with minimal disruption to staff, patients and visitors.
