Their challenge

RUMC needed a containment area for incoming patients who may be infected, so they decided to build an Ebola suite on the 10th floor of the East Tower. Due to the urgent nature of this project, they only allotted three days for the design, construction, and testing of the suite.

Our solution

Our team provided on-site design direction to the contractors, developed engineering drawings for final construction and IDPH review, and provided commissioning services to ensure the suite met the CDC’s standards. The design included three individual patient rooms, anterooms, and a consult area.
