Keystone Award Winner - Operating Room/Inter-operative Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scanner - 2014

WSP Canada Inc.

The OR/IMRIS surgical suite, on the 2nd floor of the Kleysen Institute for Advanced Medicine, comprises a movable MRI, a neurosurgery OR, a catheter angiography OR, and control centre.

The project is a 1,000 square meter inter-operative theatre, the first in Canada and required planning and design of highly specific surgical environments for the development and use of new technological advancements in treatment and simulation. The magnet and software were being developed while construction documentation was underway; hence the building environment had to be robust enough to accommodate the unknowns of a Beta site.
