Temporary Hospital Rooms for COVID-19
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak in Southwest Georgia, our team provided replicable mechanical, electrical and plumbing designs to convert pods of 21 shipping containers into temporary 24-bed hospital facilities. These designs included medical gas delivery, a nurse call system and a HEPA-filtered dedicated outdoor air system that met hospital regulations. Thanks to the speed and reliability of our work, the project went from concept to finished construction in under a month, providing hospitals in Macon and Albany with valuable patient rooms during their time of need.
