Re: [Stay AGILE in Healthcare projects April 23rd 2020 webinar] - Containerised solutions key points

The NHS Nightingale projects were constructed in 9 days. This is where they have converted convention centers to accommodate up to 4000 patient beds.

 

This is similar to  what we have seem in other regions such as Spain and USA

 

In China, Whuan they built an emergency hospital in 10 days

 

For the container solution we shared the typical lead time is maximum 4 weeks

 

The critical MEP elements to consider are power requirements, HVAC and IT

 

1. Power: if it is a convention center there is probably good distribution of power but this needs to be considered to make sure their is good power quality and backup. There is a need for UPS in these environments

2. HVAC: air flow direction is important (movement from clean to less clean) so making sure exhaust systems are installed along with good filtration with HEPA filters. its important to monitor air flow and provide indication to clinical staff so they know the conditions they are working in

3. Networking capabilities so medical information can shared with electronic heath records
