Galichia Heart Hospital MRI AdditionLocation: Wichita, Kansas Owner: Wesley Medical Center Architect: Spangenberg Phillips Tice Construction: Eby Construction
This 1,730 SF addition and renovation was designed to house Wesley Woodlawn’s new heart MRI. The project came with a significant challenge due to an extremely tight schedule. Although the entire project had a tight three month deadline, GE’s installation of the MRI equipment would take four weeks, leaving only two months for construction. Another challenging factor involved the installation of the 8 foot tall, 12,000 lb MRI magnet. The only available window opening was 9 feet tall but with proper planning and coordination, Eby was able to complete the installation while protecting the finished sheet vinyl floor underneath. Any project of this speed would be challenging enough but add in the fact that this project had to be completed without interrupting a busy hospital made it doubly challenging. Eby was able to deliver the project on time without any disruption or delay.
