Modular Healthcare Buildings

What Are Modular Healthcare Buildings?

Modular healthcare buildings are prefabricated structures built in sections or modules offsite, then transported and assembled on your site. These buildings can serve various healthcare facilities, including hospitals, clinics, emergency rooms and laboratories. They are particularly useful for rapidly expanding existing facilities, setting up temporary healthcare services, or responding to emergencies and disasters. MPB has provided many modular healthcare buildings and uses cutting-edge design and outstanding service to deliver professional provisions with rapid lead times.

The benefits are significant. Modular healthcare facilities can be constructed and deployed faster than traditional structures, reducing time and potentially lowering costs. They offer flexibility, as modules can be added, removed or repurposed based on changing needs. Their offsite construction minimises onsite disruptions. Additionally, these buildings are designed to adhere to strict healthcare standards, ensuring they meet the necessary safety and functional requirements.

Our process

Step 01 – Design phase

The most important step is to meet you, view your site and discuss your parameters for the project. We collaborate with you to ensure the design meets all your requirements and use the information to quote for the work. We visit the site to assess any access restrictions.

Step 02 – Planning and compliance

The relevant planning permission must be applied for, and if you prefer to opt for our turnkey service, we can handle all the paperwork for you. Building, health and safety and fire regulations must all be adhered to. The planning permission stage can take approximately 8 – 12 weeks to complete.

Step 03 – Groundworks and manufacturing

When the planning permission has been granted, the offsite manufacturing of the building’s modules commences whilst onsite foundation, mains services, ducting and drainage are begun. The completion of both phases of the project in tandem vastly reduces the lead times of the overall project.

Step 04 – Installation

The modular building is delivered to your site along with all the labour and machinery necessary and the construction begins including any external modifications and all internal fixtures and fittings. The project is completed according to the original design and ready to be handed over to you.

Step 05 – Snagging and Handover

All final snagging tasks will be checked and taken care of to guarantee the finished product meets the client’s expectations. When these are completed, the keys and certificates are handed over for you to move into the new facility and start benefitting from your new space.

How Modular Buildings Benefit The Healthcare Industry

No Onsite Disruption

With the majority of a modular building being constructed offsite, there is much less disruption onsite compared to traditional construction. This is a particularly attractive feature for healthcare facilities such as hospitals, where there is always heavy footfall and it’s not possible to halt operations for building work to take place.

Modular buildings cause much less disruption because they can be installed much quicker than bricks and mortar buildings whilst allowing the facility to continue to operate throughout the project.

Quick And Safe Construction

Modular healthcare buildings are constructed much more quickly than traditional ones which massively speeds up the time of installation – especially as groundworks can be prepared simultaneously.

The controlled factory environment as well as the rapid construction time gives a much greater standard of quality control whilst minimising onsite risks, noise and dust and this speed when coupled with the safety element makes it the obvious choice for healthcare environments to effortlessly expand usable space and additional provision, giving modular construction a strategic advantage in healthcare facility management and service delivery.

Reduced Costs

Modular healthcare facilities are more cost-effective than traditional alternatives due to the efficiencies of factory production, reduced labour costs and decreased waste. For the healthcare industry, this cost efficiency means funds can be allocated more towards patient care and advanced medical technologies rather than infrastructure.

Additionally, the ability to expand or modify facilities affordably allows healthcare providers to adapt to changing needs or patient volumes at a fraction of the cost a traditional construction would.

Greater Design Flexibility

Modular buildings for healthcare offer unparalleled flexibility as they can be tailored to meet specific needs and requirements. Their modular nature allows for easy expansion, reduction, or reconfiguration, adapting to the changing demands of its users.

In the context of design, modules can be customised in the factory to include specific features, layouts and technologies, ensuring each building is precisely fit for its intended purpose. Hygienic walls and floors and specialist lighting allow modular buildings to provide operating theatres, additional wards, decontamination units, testing centres, laboratories and more for specific healthcare needs.

Optional Extras For Modular Healthcare Facilities

Optional extras for healthcare modular buildings often include advanced HVAC systems (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning), enhanced sanitation facilities, specialised medical gas systems and integrated technological solutions. MPB can also offer customisable interior layouts, energy-efficient lighting options, superior insulation and noise-reduction features, as well as exterior aesthetic enhancements.

These optional extras allow healthcare providers to significantly improve their modular facilities, tailoring them to specific medical and patient care needs. For instance, advanced HVAC systems ensure a sterile and comfortable environment crucial for patient recovery and staff performance. Specialised medical gas systems are vital for patient care in surgeries or intensive care units. Integrated technology solutions can facilitate cutting-edge healthcare services, improving patient outcomes and operational efficiency.

By selecting these enhancements, healthcare institutions can create a facility that not only meets but exceeds standard care delivery expectations, ensuring their modular building is fully equipped to provide top-tier medical services and adapt to future healthcare innovations. Modular buildings can be equipped with toilets and showers, kitchen areas for the preparation of food and office space for administrative staff to work, along with many other features depending on the needs of the institution.

Available Options

Alongside the many different options for customisation is the fact MPB also offers modular healthcare buildings for hire if the need is a short-term solution rather than a permanent one, or if the budgetary constraints won’t allow for a new building. Other options include:

  • HVAC and AC (Air Conditioning)
  • Medical gas systems
  • Enhanced sanitation systems and hygienic flooring and wall coverings
  • Customisable layout
  • Energy efficient systems such as LED lighting
  • Accessibility features such as ramps, elevators and accessible toilets.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need planning permission for modular healthcare buildings?

Obtaining planning permission for modular healthcare buildings is crucial to ensure the structure complies with local laws and regulations. The process involves submitting detailed plans and specifications to the local planning authority, which will consider factors such as land use, environmental impact and community standards. Healthcare facilities often face stricter scrutiny due to their public health implication which means engaging with planning experts will ensure the modular healthcare building meets all legal and safety requirements. Our team at MPB can handle the planning permission if you select our turnkey service – taking the stress out of your new installation.

Can I hire a modular healthcare building?

Hiring a modular healthcare building offers flexibility and cost-effectiveness, especially for healthcare providers needing temporary or adaptable space solutions. Rental agreements can vary in terms, allowing healthcare facilities to scale up or down based on demand. This option is particularly advantageous for managing temporary increases in patient volume, undergoing renovations, or responding to emergencies. When hiring a modular building, providers can often choose from a range of customisation options to ensure the facility meets its specific operational and patient care needs.

How long does it take to build a healthcare modular building?

The construction timeline for a modular healthcare facility can vary based on factors like design complexity, size and customisation level. However, the overall time from initial design to full operation is always significantly shorter compared to traditional construction. This expedited timeline is due to the offsite production of modules, which reduces delays related to weather, site conditions, or scheduling conflicts. Once the site is prepared and modules are completed, assembly onsite is relatively quick. For healthcare providers, this means faster access to needed facilities, minimising disruption to services and allowing quicker response to healthcare demands or community needs.
