MMC techniques adopted for Norfolk and Norwich IRU

MTX will shortly complete a new 1,500 m2 Interventional Radiology Unit at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. Mounted on the roof of the existing Outpatients’ East building, close to the Emergency Department, the new ‘IRU’ will significantly increase the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH)’s capacity to diagnose and treat vascular and other conditions using interventional radiology.

Constructing it on top an existing clinical building, with difficult access issues, and the need to lift each of the 42 offsite-manufactured volumetric hybrid units into place using a 500-tonne crane, has, however, posed some interesting challenges for the fast-track construction, offsite building, and turnkey project specialist’s on-site team. HEJ editor, Jonathan Baillie, reports

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH) provides acute care for around one million people living in Norfolk and surrounding areas. It offers a full range of acute clinical services – including more specialist services such as oncology and radiotherapy, neonatology, trauma and orthopaedics, plastic surgery, vascular surgery, robotic surgery, bone marrow transplants, interventional radiology, brachytherapy, specialist cardiology, paediatric medicine, and surgery. Its principal site is the 1,200-bedded acute teaching hospital, the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, just southwest of Norwich, but it also runs a smaller hospital in Cromer. The Trust undertakes nearly one million outpatient appointments, day case procedures, and inpatient admissions annually.
