New left ventricular catheterisation unit to open this summer
Cadolzburg, 11.04.2018 ------ An extension to the existing building at the Kitzinger Land hospital to provide a left ventricular catheterisation unit will enable diagnostic tests to be carried out on both hospital patients and outpatients. Cadolto was awarded the contract to design and construct the modular building extension at the end of January 2018. The new building is due to be completed in summer 2018.
Cadolto won the tender against a number of competitors. The high level of prefabrication and the tight schedule were the decisive factors, enabling Cadolto to keep the construction time on site short and thus minimise disruption to the adjacent hospital facilities.
The single storey building with a floor area of just under 300 m² was designed by the architects’ firm Kosel of Würzburg. It comprises seven modules and is connected directly to the existing hospital building.
The new extension to the existing ward unit is connected to the supply system for the existing hospital building. In addition to the diagnostics unit and associated medical technology, a number of special function units will also be provided.
Planning for the fabrication of the modules began immediately the contract was awarded. The completed modules will be delivered on special transporters and installed on the site. The final step will be the installation of the medical technology for the left ventricular catheterisation unit.
