ModuleCo are now just weeks away from installing an isolation ward for the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust to assist with their ongoing response to COVID-19 and provide long term, permanent ward capacity at their Lincoln County Hospital site.
ModuleCo’s innovative design consists of multiple, repeatable, modules making up the 520m2 footprint. The standalone isolation ward offers 11 single occupancy, en-suite rooms, alongside ancillary support spaces for the clinical and nursing staff including: staff rest area; male and female staff changes; dedicated ward pantry; staff WC; clean and dirty utility; nurse base/reception area and electrical plant rooms.
The development provides the Trust with HBN04-01 compliant rooms for potentially infectious patients in acute settings. This specialist capacity supports the needs of the local communities and also offers the Trust further dedicated bedrooms which will be used to treat the most critically ill patients throughout the coronavirus pandemic and beyond.
With every day critical to meeting the agreed timescales for the Trust, ModuleCo’s designs had to be ‘right first time’ and this required clear and accurate communication across our respective project teams as well as fast-paced decision making and sign off from the Trust. We are now in the midst of factory assembly and in just a matter of weeks this vital facility will be on site.
Business Development Manager for ModuleCo and project sponsor, Edward Dusting, said:
“Everyone connected with ModuleCo takes great pride in what has been achieved so far in an impressively short space of time. Delivering this technically complex scheme quickly, on budget and on programme in the midst of a global pandemic and whilst maintaining the highest H&S standards, is testament to the world-class expertise of our designers, project managers and contractors.“
