Massachusetts General Hospital Wang ACC MRI
Linea 5 has a strong specialty in the design of Imaging Facilities, and of MRIs in particular, with over 20 MRI projects completed. This project, the creation of a new MRI suite within the Wang Ambulatory Care Building in the existing Avon Breast Center at MGH, was planned for a special machine designed for breast imaging.
Linea 5 designed not only the new suite, including the engineering aspects of the project, but also the structural intervention needed to support the MRI’s 26,000 pound weight. Also, our staff planned for a way to demolish the second floor exterior wall of the building, allowing the MRI to be delivered into the space, in a way that allows for future replacement of the MRI without the same major effort.
