Utilizing Highly-Engineered Quick-Ship Modular Products thumbnail

NEW! COVID-19 Alternate Care Sites: Utilizing Highly-Engineered Quick-Ship Modular Products for Current Isolation Environment Demands
Speakers: Kyle Weisman, Jeff Harris, Krista McDonald Biason

With the constantly evolving criteria required to address the surge of patients impacted by the COVID-19 virus, there are many options that health care organizations will explore and deploy. Options consist of revising existing clinical spaces, to renovating nonclinical spaces like hotels and conventions centers, to bringing temporary tents and structures on-site to house patients. When the need for true airborne infection isolation rooms (AIIRs) is required, a prefabricated, modular and scalable option is a viable alternative. The design team will share the concept of a self-sufficient, quick-ship free-standing hospital and the kit of parts architectural and engineering systems required to support this mission that meets the intent of the CDC recommendations.


ASHE - before your restructure parking

NEW! COVID-19 Alternate Care Sites: Before You Repurpose Structured Parking for COVID-19 Patients
Speakers: John Purinton, Gordon Knowles

As health care workers man the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak, one of the challenges they’re forced to confront is how – and where – to manage the dramatic increase in patient volume.
