Pretty much, the whole Events Industry collapsed in a matter of days following the lockdown announcement.
We did not know how things were going to pan out over the coming weeks and months during lockdown, and we were bracing for anything that was going to come our way.
When we were able to build various COVID-19 Field Hospitals, Triage & Testing Facilities and other medical facilities for the Western Cape Government Health Department, we immediately jumped into action. With no time to waste, we handed over our first full turnkey COVID-19 Field Hospital at Tygerberg Hospital, in a matter of days.
On handover the Field Hospital was fitted out with:
-A waiting area
-Donning and doffing rooms for medical personnel to get into & out of their PPE gear
-Catering room for the medical personnel
We also provided:
-Raised flooring with wheelchair access into the facility
-Ventilation as per hospital spec
-Lighting & electrical points
-Plumbing for elbow taps and
This Field Hospital will initially be used as a Triage and Sampling Facility, but can be converted to a 50 Bed isolation hospital if the need arises.
With this blue print we were able to build all the other COVID-19 Field Hospitals around the Western Cape. Each of the other facilities had their own challenges, like the space that was available around the hospitals, access to site with 8 ton trucks, we also needed to build around trees and walls and walkways.
We feel very honoured to be able to assist our country in the race to flatten the curve, and will go to any length to continue to do so.
