Modalities

SPECIAL PROCEDURES / CATH LABS / HYBRID ORs

Experts in Special Procedures / Cath Labs / Hybrid ORs

Installations involving Special Procedures, Cath Labs and Hybrid ORs require a rare combination of expertise. Our capabilities include:

  • Complex Mechanical Design
  • Equipment Boom Location and Site Coordination
  • Structural Steel Systems
  • Equipment Integration

A Valuable Knowledge Base

Fry Construction has been successful in the completion of these suites since 1984, which gives us a decided edge over competitors who may not understand these and other nuances:

  • Extremely heavy cabling requirements call for both heavy conduit placement and duct usage.
  • Various brands of modalities require special remote-controlled surgical-style lighting.
  • Specialized flooring and ceiling treatments are needed to maintain a highly sterilized environment and conform to Department of Health regulations.
  • Requirements for HVAC and electrical systems in the labs are knowledge-intensive.

In addition, Fry Construction has the knowledge, expertise and equipment to address the infectious disease control procedures now required in all hospital environments. And we’ve invested considerable time and capital to obtain the correct equipment to make your medical installation a success.

IMAGING SUITES — CT

Meeting the Demanding Specifications of CT Suites

Computerized tomography (CT) modalities have special HVAC, cabling, electrical, welding and anchoring requirements, all of which vary widely from manufacturer to manufacturer. In addition, radiation is utilized in the procedure, which makes it necessary to pay special attention to employee and patient protection alike.

We Partner with Other Experts

Fry Construction works directly with the physicist of record to ensure that all requirements are met. These installation decisions extend to the scan room walls, doors, windows and, on occasion, all spaces adjacent to the CT room. As with all of our medical installations, Fry Construction has the knowledge and equipment to address the infectious disease control protocols now required in all hospital environments.

IMAGING SUITES — MRI

Bringing Precision and Continuity to MRI Projects

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) installation requires expertise in many areas, including RF enclosures, magnetic shielding, specialized lighting, chilled water, and sizing and installation of RF wave guides and filters. Exact placement of the MRI is critical, and its alignment to the foundation strength is exacting. Our safety standards and record relating to intensive magnetic fields are exemplary, and our success stems from our team approach to subcontractor and vendor selection to ensure continuity. Each member of our project teams has years of experience in their respective field. Fry Construction is available to make preliminary site evaluations to help save time and money. And of course, Fry Construction has the knowledge, expertise and equipment to address the infectious disease control needs now required in all hospital environments.

Keeping Up with Emerging Technologies

Since Fry Construction works closely with professionals who specialize in MRI installation, our teams are continually informed as MRI technology continues to evolve — lessening the potential for costly mistakes and delays.

IMAGING SUITES — PET / PET CT

Authorities in PET / PET CT Modalities

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and PET CT require extensive radiation protection, necessitating “hot” labs, injection rooms, isotope storage areas and “hot” restrooms. Fry Construction has the proven experience to address these concerns, along with:

  • Design and installation of required lead shielding and associated structural steel reinforcing to accommodate the excessive weight of lead
  • Custom electrical and HVAC installations to prevent fluctuations in temperature and humidity that could harm equipment
  • In-depth knowledge and specialized equipment to satisfy infectious disease control measures now required in all hospital environments
  • Attention to detail in the installation of seamless flooring to maintain Department of Health requirements

We Consult with the Physicist of Record

Fry Construction works directly with the physicist of record to ensure that all requirements are met — which may involve added attention to procedure room walls, doors, windows and, on occasion, all spaces adjacent to the PET room.

IMAGING SUITES — GENERAL X-RAY/MEDICAL

Managing Complex General X-Ray / Medical Installations

Fry Construction has performed numerous X-ray installations in challenging environments since 1984. Construction in the middle of an active hospital can be very disruptive and potentially dangerous if not managed properly. Fry Construction has the expertise and equipment to address the many challenges that come with X-Ray installation, including:

  • Strict radiation protection measures
  • Extensive cabling needs
  • Stringent HVAC and electrical requirements
  • Extensive overhead support systems, sometimes encompassing the entire ceiling
  • Integration of lighting and HVAC into complex support systems
  • Infectious disease control measures that are now required in all hospital environments
