Project Description
This project will remodel 3,000 SF of space in the Beckman Institute to install a new 3T whole-body MRI system, in a fully functional environment with access to all campus utilities as well as relocate an existing 3T head-only MRI system currently housed in the Biomedical Imaging Center (BIC). This space was originally designed to house the MRI systems of University of Illinois's noble laureate Paul C. Lauterbur. The goal is to consolidate all the Institute's MRI systems in a facility capable of supporting world-class research in this area. If this endeavor proves to be cost prohibitive, then the project will focus on remodeling 1,200SF of space in the BIC to install the campus' new 3T whole-body MRI system only.

This project includes a Project Labor Agreement that will be executed between the lowest responsible/responsive bidder and the East Central Illinois Building and Construction Trades Council. A copy of the Project Labor Agreement is included in the project bid documents, General Project Requirements.
