Flexible ward space plays a critical part in meeting targets. A modular solution from Portakabin enables you to quickly adapt space to keep up with changing patient demands.
Bespoke Ward Units
We work closely with trust stakeholders to prioritise patient flow in our design and planning, integrating our facilities so that they complement your existing patient flow plans.
Modular wards can feature:
- Clean/dirty utility
- Staff and kitchen area
- Multi-disciplinary team meeting rooms (MDT)
- Quiet rooms
- Single ensuite rooms
- Bed units
- Nurse call systems, medical gasses, access controls, WiFi (data) and cap and cove flooring
Layouts tailored to facilitate recovery
Designs account for details that are specific to a ward area. The layouts are tailored to provide enough space around beds, to facilitate patient contact and to accommodate equipment, with adequate storage. They are light and airy to aide patient recovery and design features such as integral blinds for the windows make infection control much easier.
Portakabin emerged as our first-choice supplier for the building, due to the standard of its buildings. Portakabin supplied a single-storey modular building and a two-storey structure to meet the demands of the hospital. The 427m² building is constructed from premium-quality, thermally efficient Ultima modules, which were manufactured off-site and delivered to the hospital ready for rapid installation. The modules were configured in line with the hospital's designs to maximise the space available on a tight plot, surrounded on three sides by other buildings.
Don't just take our word for it, see what our customers say about our track record of delivering successful ward units.
