The medical construction company, Medical Building Solutions (MBS), is building a turnkey clinic for the Turkish hospital group Acibadem, in the former Municipal Transport Authority’s office in Amsterdam Westpoort. The clinic on the Arlandaweg will carry out diagnostic research studies and perform outpatient treatments and minor surgeries.
More lead lined plaster panels
MBS uses VarioShield panels from Lead2Fix for the protection of spaces housing the CT scanner, mammography and the X-ray equipment. Project leader, Tom van de Groes, says, “We are increasingly receiving more projects in our business with larger diagnostics, and dentists, and that means we are applying more lead lined plaster panels. It is an advantage then if you can deploy products that save time and are easy to use.” Rick Philipart of MBS affirms these words. “In existing office buildings, for example, the elevator space is limited and it’s difficult to manoeuvre large materials. Panels measuring less than one and a half meters can be pushed through the whole building without any problem.”
Choice of building
MBS is a turnkey medical construction company with an impressive track record in the field of medical facilities, including cleanrooms. Van de Groes: “We build and rebuild, renovate and maintain, but we also advise on the choice of building; this choice can have a huge influence on the logistics and functionality of a clinic or cleanroom. Our turnkey concept, both in terms of project management as well as the technical maintenance, ensures our clients have less to worry about.
