MRI - Under Construction


Cumulus led a design team to add a third MRI exam room to the diagnostic suite at Humber River Hospital. An existing conference room was modified with new magnetic shielding to protect an adjacent public corridor from magnetic fields, while new radiofrequency shielding partitions were added to protect the new magnet against image distortion.

Due to the current capacity of the diagnostic suite, the equipment supporting the MRI unit was placed separately between an expanded equipment room, a repurposed linen room, a repurposed storage room and a remote electrical room. The mechanical and electrical design was unique in that system layouts and equipment interconnections were often pushed to their limits and required thorough investigation of impacts to the existing hospital facilities.

CT Suite

Cumulus led the design team to transform an existing multi-purpose procedure room at Humber River Hospital into a dedicated room to house their new Discovery HD GSI CT equipment. The scope of work included design of additional layers of led shielding for walls, doors and viewing windows, a new overhead Unistrut system to accommodate additional ceiling mounted devices, and modifications to the existing sprinkler, HVAC and electrical systems to suit the new CT and control room.
