New COVID Swabbing Unit supplied to Midlands Hospital

A local hospital, who we have had the pleasure of working with previously, contacted us again to help supply them with a drive-through COVID swabbing unit. It was important that this unit helped make the testing of patients quick and efficient as well as being safe for everyone involved. Our clients also wanted to ensure that the staff carrying out the swab testing would be protected from the weather. Therefore, a canopy was designed to fit alongside the building offering shelter and allowing for two cars to fit beneath it.

Due to the nature of the project, an architect was employed to help decide the best location and if any of the current land or road layout needed restructuring to enable the most efficient way for patients to access the swabbing unit.

This new portable building measures 36’ x 10’. The exterior is made from plastisol steel with vinyl faced plasterboard interior and vinyl flooring for easy cleaning. Inside the building, one end is to be used as an office space up to three people. In the middle section hand wash stations are set up for ease of access for staff after being outside and a kitchenette with an oversink water. The other end of the building has a DDA toilet. Across the door, an air curtain was placed over the door to help keep the temperature in the building at a comfortable temperature whilst the door is open to prevent constant door handle touching.

Outside of the building, a timber ramp was constructed on site to allow for access to the building.

We hope that this new addition to the hospital helps to battle the current pandemic.
