Howell Construction Completes MRI Replacement for Avista Adventist Hospital
Denver, CO (May 28, 2019) – Howell Construction and TreanorHL completed the Avista Adventist Hospital MRI Replacement project. Avista is a comprehensive medical center that provides a full range of medical specialties and exceptional health care.
In Spring of 2018, Howell setup the infrastructure to support a mobile MRI trailer provided by Avista to service patients, while the renovation took place. This work consisted of the demolition and reinstallation of landscape islands along with 225 square feet of structural concrete pads with temporary electrical services to feed the new trailer. Howell also installed new concrete curb, gutter, and sidewalk to service the new trailer and continue as a permanent fixture once the project was complete.
In May 2018, Howell began the second mobilization and assisted in the removal of the existing machine and worked closely with GE Healthcare (Owner’s vendor) who supplied equipment that serviced the MRI along with the machine itself.
The remodel included: new millwork, flooring, paint, doors, and wall protection finishes; MRI offices and a new lounge; heavy mechanical/electrical/plumbing (MEP) package; installation of a new CRAC unit, exhaust fan, and chilled water lines; and rework of the cryogen vent and RF shielding in the MRI Exam Room.
