About RAD Technology Medical Systems
RAD Technology Medical Systems is a company delivering revolutionary, proprietary technology for radiation shielding applications which is incorporated into a range of products incorporating this technology for temporary and permanent use. The Temporary Radiotherapy Vault (TRV) concept was developed to enable Radiation Oncology departments and practices to continue to treat patients while upgrading their Linear Accelerator or renovating their vaults. The TRV can be used as a 3 to 6 month solution.
RAD selected Whitley Manufacturing as a manufacturing partner for the construction of their TRV vault and clinic space. The challenge was formidable; placing a vault with a pre-commissioned linear accelerator and clinical space on-site in a matter of days. In addition, the TRV is designed for short-term applications and needed to be relocatable.
RAD's specialty foundation system which requires no slab, saving millions of pounds of concrete. The TRV is composed of four primary modules (built off-site by Whitley Mfg) which are transported to the project site and quickly set in place. Prefabricated supporting structures are placed atop the primary modules allowing finishing and equipment installation to take place.
The exterior has a modern, clean look with a gleaming aluminum composite panel (ACM) wall cladding system. The interior features a graceful, curving reception area with material selections and color palettes imparting a theme of soothing natural tones. Interior materials were selected for their suitability in the healthcare enviornment and are resistant to mold, mildew, and bacterial growth.
