Forta PRO, a Latvian-based modular construction company, and MT Højgaard, a Danish construction company, recently completed the MARS Satellite Radiology Clinic building in Copenhagen, Denmark. The new clinic will provide additional acute care services to patients for faster and more advanced medical research.
The MARS clinic was built as a modular building off-site in Latvia and then shipped across the Baltic Sea to the assembly location. It combines 24 steel frame modules weighing up to 27 tons each. The most substantial blocks are equipped with all the necessary protection systems to provide safe and efficient operation for quicker patient diagnostics. The modules were designed to fit the most modern medical equipment such as X-Ray, CT, and MRI scanners.
Onsite construction was completed in only two weeks without disrupting neighboring working clinical departments or blocking traffic pathways for ambulances. By assembling the modules in a factory, onsite dust and noise was mitigated as compared to traditional construction.
