Texas Business reports:   Fry Construction, a medical imaging design and construction firm, broke ground on the first phase of a medical imaging center for scientific research.

Texas Tech University is building the first research-dedicated Siemens 3T fMRI in the West Texas region.

The new capability will allow advanced research in imaging with a focus on Neuroimaging related to Autism, Addiction, Brain Development, and a host of other applications.

Located at the Experimental Sciences Building on the campus of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, the MRI suite is a collaborative effort between Fry Construction, Inc., Texas Tech University, and Siemens Medical Solutions Inc.

Fry Construction's in-house, healthcare architect worked directly with the staff and research team at Siemens and Texas Tech.

 “We are thrilled to be a part of such an innovative medical imaging project and are proud that Fry Construction continues to be selected for these types of specialized healthcare based projects,” said Fry Construction president Ben Fry in a prepared statement. 

“We selected Siemens and Fry Construction based on their long-standing reputation in the imaging community and the positive past experiences in the medical construction field, said Texas Tech vice president Taylor Eighmy in a prepared statement.  “With such a significant project, there is little room for error and we were confident that Fry Construction would meet our expectations.”

Fry Construction Company Inc. pioneered the practice of precision construction in 1984 at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Dallas and has since completed over 850 specialized facilities over the past 26 years.
