Expand and Renovate Nuclear Medicine and Radiology
This was a multi-phased project that involved renovating and expanding 18,600 total square feet of Nuclear Medicine and Radiology space. The first phase of the project was to renovate the Nuclear Medicine Service and surrounding space in the basement of the main facility. This renovated and expanded area included 3 additional echo rooms and 2 new CT rooms as well as revised and more patient-friendly layout that connects the current Nuclear Medicine space with the 2 newly built PET/CT units opened in 2012. This project consolidated Nuclear Medicine in its entirety as well as provided new HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and architectural systems. The 2nd phase of the project was the renovation of existing Radiology space adjacent to the Nuclear Medicine space. Third phase was the renovation of office spaces. Fourth phase was renovation of (4) radiology procedure rooms. This project represents the last phase of a multi-year, multi-project consolidation and expansion of the entire Radiology Service and will provide new HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and architectural systems to address the space, energy, condition, and utilization gaps. All work was performed around high traffic patient areas which required close coordination between VA engineering department and IMS management while ensuring patient safety and infection control requirements were met on a daily basis.
