Installing a fail-safe power supply was critical to the project’s success. The building has two parts, each with its own power supply. By using the connection capability of busbars on each floor, we designed a back-up system whereby one part of the building can support the other if needed. To mitigate start-up time for the emergency diesel generator, we installed a dynamic uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system. UPS is essential for the below-ground cyclotron that supplies the hospital’s PET scanners with radioactive isotopes.
Working with our client, we have developed leading-edge technical solutions to provide Sahlgrenska Cancer Centre with the most advanced facilities fit for the future. Key to our design was creating an optimum spatial structure to provide an effective workspace for clinicians and assure operational security for patients. We also focused on ensuring this highly complex refurbishment scheme enhances Sahlgrenska Cancer Centre’s reputation as one of most advanced of its type in the world.
