The Korte Company worked closely with Carlinville Area Hospital’s team to design and construct a 1,286 square foot addition to accommodate their imaging suite and MRI machine. The addition and renovations allowed the hospital to create a permanent position for their imaging suite and MRI, which had been contained in an adjacent, temporary position since 2010.

The addition was designed to match the existing facility with upgrades to meet current International Energy Code requirements including TPO Membrane roofing with rigid insulation board. A 4-inch expansion joint was incorporated to isolate the addition from the main structure to eliminate thermal and seismic effects as well as reduce structure borne vibration created by the MRI imaging system.

The new space incorporated a steel moment frame structure, which provided rigid support with more usable floor area for the expansive equipment. The ceiling system utilized an aluminum frame grid and acoustical tile system using MRI compatible lights and components.

Renovations to the existing facility included the relocation and conversion of the bone density and ultrasound rooms. Separate mechanical systems were required for the addition and included an independent system for the MRI equipment and a second for the cooling of the MRI imaging and support spaces.
