The 3,716m2 building will be situated next to the Quadram Institute on the Norwich Research Park, connecting the pre-existing infrastructure at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital to the new services. A steel frame will be installed with a brick facade in line with the University Hospital existing design.
Alister Broadberry, area director for Morgan Sindall Construction in the Eastern Counties, said "The diagnostic centre is set to become a prime example of great design and the team’s forward-thinking approach, further enhancing Morgan Sindall’s reputation in the region."
Simon Hackwell, director of strategy & major projects at Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said: “Demand for almost all aspects of diagnostics has been rising year on year. Imaging is such an important part of so many of our clinical pathways, including cancer and other urgent referrals. The centre at Norfolk & Norwich Hospital will be in a new building on the Norwich Research Park. This means it will be separate from the hospital’s emergency and inpatient demand and allows us to maximise throughput with planned appointments. Taken together the programme across Norfolk is the largest investment in health facilities since the Norfolk & Norwich hospital was built over 20 years ago. After so long in the planning we are really looking forward to working in partnership with Morgan Sindall to get on and deliver this for our patients.”
