The new Imaging Centre of Excellence provides state-of-the-art research facilities to improve treatments for brain, stroke and cardiovascular diseases, based at the new Queen Elizabeth University Hospital campus.
The new five-storey ICE building houses the UK’s first 7 Tesla MRI scanner, allowing scientists to carry out new clinical research as well as four theatre suites with full ancillary accommodation for the Department of Neurosurgery and Oral Maxillofacial Surgery. The building also has a dedicated “industry” floor expanding the university’s clinical innovation zone at QEUH.
The new operating theatres incorporate the latest ultra clean ventilation skirt-less canopies fed from dedicated air handling plant located in a roof top plant room. All the building ventilation plant incorporates high efficiency heat recovery in the form of plate heat exchangers and thermal wheels. The building also benefits from high efficiency condensing boiler plant, combined heat and power plant, roof mounted photovoltaic panels and LED lighting throughout.
