MTX have successfully handed over the East Midlands Congenital Heart Centre to Leicester Royal Infirmary. The heart centre is dedicated to treating children who have been born with heart defects.
Working in conjunction with our design partners, MTX constructed a bespoke 2 storey building, utilising Modern Methods of Construction. The building was attached to the existing hospital estate.
The new 2 storey facility was built using Modern Methods of Construction and houses an operating theatre, catheter lab, recovery suites, outpatients and diagnostics facilities, all necessary ancillary and a dedicated plantroom; all over 1080m² of new accommodation. Externally the scheme has been finished with a light wash brick façade and attractive letter blocks.
The theatre and catheter lab were constructed on the first floor from a modular framed traditional cast in situ concrete floor. The steel structure was upgraded to minimise vibration while the floor and ceiling mounted c-arms are operational.
The design of the facility included an IPS / UPS which served the theatre, recovery beds and catheter lab, and was interfaced to back up the Philips imaging equipment in the event of power cut. The IPS circuits in the rooms are interlaced to provide N+1 resilience. The UPS was designed to provide 1 hour autonomy in the event of normal supply being lost.
