MMW architects, along with its partners, present an efficient, flexible and affordable modular hospital. The module hospital is designed for optimal infection control and can solve the burst hospital capacity both nationally and globally. The system is based on containers and an inflated cloth assembled in an innovative way to ensure the strict requirements for air contamination.

The system can be adapted to different scenarios and crisis situations and can accommodate both isolates and larger bed rooms as needed. The suppliers are ready to deliver and the hospital can be traveled immediately upon order.

Design

 

Design Inspiration The plan is developed in collaboration with doctor Mads Gilbert, who advised the use of a horseshoe-shaped plan to allow for maximum efficiency in the layout of the hospital rooms and as a measure to constrain the spread of the Covid-19 virus within the hospital. The horseshoe-plan allows for ambulances to drive directly to the patient rooms so patients can be transported into isolation without being moved through the corridors of the hospital.
Used for shelter before? No
Prior use comments N/A
Manufacturer Identified? Yes
Building experience comments The product suppliers are prepared to deliver, and the hospital is ready to be constructed upon order.
Intended use cases The module hospital can either accommodate COVID-19 patients or be an alternative for non-infected intensive care units to relieve local hospitals. The system is intended to be a contingency hospital that will function as a satellite hospital physically close to a larger parent hospital.
R-value (insulation) 21-30

Professional Engineer Stamp?
Conforms to ICC’s Temporary Structure and Uses Code The containers and the inflatable canvas are assembled to meet Norwegian regulatory. The system is designed for circular systems for global functionality and uses solar energy to operate the necessary technical installations. The use of solar energy is especially important for global solutions. The containers are recycled and can be re-used as regular transport containers after its use in the modular hospital.
Other Structural / Safety Comments
