GEMA Temporary Hospital Rooms

Our Client

The Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS) is the state’s preparedness, response, and recovery agency. As part of the Office of the Governor, they work with local, state, and federal governments, in partnership with private sector organizations, to prevent and respond to natural and man-made emergencies.

Project Highlights

Location: Georgia
Size: 6,750 square feet per facility
Year: 2020
Industry: Healthcare
Application: Modular Hospital

The Challenge

Southwest Georgia had one of the highest per-capita rates of COVID-19 in the United States, threatening to overwhelm the area’s healthcare system. GEMA needed to increase hospital capacity to temporarily accommodate the surge created by the highly contagious virus.

Our Solution

In 4 weeks, our team converted 42 shipping containers into 2 temporary 24-bed hospital facilities. Infrastructure included medical gas delivery, a nurse call station, and a HEPA-filtered dedicated outdoor air system to meet hospital regulations.

The Results

The speed and reliability of our work allowed the project to progress from concept to finished construction in only 4 weeks, providing much-needed patient rooms for overburdened hospitals in Macon and Albany, Georgia.
