Construction services group ISG has started work on its latest project at Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge after securing a contract to deliver a new MRI scanner facility at the world-renowned teaching hospital.

ISG, whose eastern regional arm, formerly known as ISG Jackson, is based in Ipswich and is a member of the EADT/EDP Top100 listing of the 100 largest companies in Suffolk and Norfolk, will modify and reconfigure an underused area of the teaching hospital’s main building to accommodate an additional MRI scanner

The contractor has successfully delivered a number of recent projects at Addenbrooke’s, including refurbishment of the trauma centre, the haematology department and the peri-natal facility.

The latest project involves significant mechanical and electrical services upgrades to the existing accommodation to serve the new MRI scanner, with the installation of specialist shielding, improvements to the drainage system and a full clinical fit out of the new facility.

Liam Duffy, ISG’s regional director – east, said: “The dynamic nature of modern medicine, with changing clinical requirements and rapid advancements in technology for treatment and diagnosis exerts increasing demand to adapt and reconfigure existing hospital accommodation.

“Our specialist knowledge and experience working closely with the estates management team at CUH Addenbrooke’s, and at hospitals across the UK, enables ISG to successfully manage and deliver complex live environment projects within strict timeframes.”
