Digital Conversion

Breast Test Wales

HL Design were appointed by Breast Test Wales in 2011 to design and coordinate the refurbishment of all Mammography testing centres in Wales, including the conversion, from film, to new digital diagnostic equipment in each centre. The overall project value, including equipment, was approximately 10 million pounds.

Each centres refurbishment varied from a light touch of decoration, new finishes and reconfiguration of services to the clinical area to a full strip out including reconfiguration of internal layouts and full fit-out,all whilst maintaining the operation of the client occupied areas outside of the construction works. HL Design used their experience of early liaison with the appointed Radiation Protection Advisor and selected specialist diagnostic equipment suppliers to ensure each project was delivered on time and within budget.

The works were carefully planned to ensure Breast Test Wales maintained its overall clinical service to Wales during these conversions with minimal disruption
