West Suburban Medical Center wanted to double the procedure capacity of their existing Cath Lab. The addition K2N was hired to design houses a new "state of the art" procedure room as well as the required support spaces, including a control room and catheterization equipment room. The space available for the project was not very large and didn't allow for optimal viewing angles from the control room to the procedure table. To correct this problem, a building column was relocated to allow the procedure table to be placed exactly where it needed to be.
