Team Architects delivered the technically highly complex retrofit of MRI suites within 24 weeks from start to finish at Mid Central DHB (Palmerston North Hospital). The Siemens Magnetic Resonance Imaging unit was secured, constructed and shipped from the German manufacturer. Upon arrival the 4 tonne unit was inserted through an opening cut through the external concrete structure and installed in its new location within a new copper encased suite. Decanting existing Medical Records tenant was integral dependency of this project. Specialist mechanical chiller, HVAC, medical gases, electrical and data systems were installed and new secure patient areas, preparation, waiting, reception and control spaces completed the project. The project was delivered a week early in spite of challenges in construction and delivery as well as infrastructure and is providing services to patients at maximum capacity. Team Architects  were appointed as Project Engineer, working with and coordinating a team of local consultants as well as specialists in Australia and Germany to design, consent and manage the project.
