Queen Mary Hospital in Kent had the requirement for a new MRI facility to provide high quality scans to the local area. ICE were instructed by the main contractor to undertake the mechanical works on the new facility.

Due to our expertise and experience within this sector and projects of this size, our scope of works was extensive and critical in order to deliver the new hospital extension that exceeded £6 million.

Scope of work

The project consisted of the refurbishment of existing ground floor offices areas to accommodate 2 new MRI facilities and all ancillary rooms.

The project consisted of the design, supply installation and commissioning of the process cooling to serve the MRI equipment, helium quench pipes, oxygen monitoring, emergency extract, leak detection,  air conditioning, humidification and ventilation to the MRI scanning rooms and surrounding areas.

How ICE helped

A number of Mitsubishi Electric Lossnay heat recovery units were installed throughout the facility to serve the reception, offices, waiting rooms and control rooms with ventilation. To provide climate control to these areas a Mitsubishi Electric VRF system with central control was installed. Within individual specialised areas split systems were installed for the Server Room and also the 2 x Tech Rooms

To maintain temperature control and adequate ventilation rates within the MRI Exam Rooms Mitsubishi Electric DX GUG units were installed with Vimplex humidifiers to ensure the correct humidity levels to scanning.

To provide run and standby cooling to the MRI equipment we supplied, installed and commissioned 2 x ICS I-Chillers.

Crowcon Oxygen Monitoring Systems were installed in the control rooms with sensors positioned within the return duct from the examination rooms. These were linked to 2x emergency extract fans that would operate in the vent of oxygen depletion within the Exam Rooms.

The works also included the installation of 2x Helium Quench Pipes running the full height of the building

This project was run by our Head of Projects Lee Hopkins and was installed using several in house teams and the management of specialised sub-contractors and installers


A high-pressure project with a series of critical deadlines, all of which were met. We have continued to work on other projects with the main contractor and the medical client who sanctioned this project.

We have strong working ties with the main contractor due to our working ethics, dedication to deliver and our working relationships, co-operation and respect shown to all other trades and specialists on this project.
