Modular feats: Copenhagen’s new radiology clinic built in two weeks

Latvian modular builder Forta PRO has assembled a new radiology clinic in Copenhagen, Denmark in just two weeks by manufacturing the modules in Finland and shipping them over the Baltic Sea.

The latest addition to Copenhagen’s Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg Hospital, the new MARS Satellite Radiology Clinic has 24 steel frame modules weighing up to 27 tons apiece.

Modules were designed to accommodate the latest generations of X-Ray, CT, and MRI scanners, and were manufactured with the necessary patient protection systems.

Forta PRO’s Danish partner in the project was contractor MT Højgaard.

Assembling blocks at the factory and shipping to site allowed them to erect the building in the short time frame without disturbing neighbouring clinical departments or blocking ambulances.

It also kept dust and noise levels to a minimum.

"We are very impressed by our construction partners from Latvia who have built a modular building locally and shipped it over the Baltic Sea to the location where it’s been assembled," said Kristian Antonsen, the hospital’s chief medical officer.

He added: "We are very excited to have this building in the centre of Copenhagen for the benefit of more than 500,000 inhabitants."
