Specially adapted module building
During the summer and autumn, PCS Modulsystem is assembling a care department for geriatrics in Löwenströmska Hospital in Upplands Väsby, north of Stockholm, with space for 34 residents. The entire unit will be an extension to Löwenströmska, with access to the main building via a gate. The premises are being improved by specially adapted modules from PCS’s portable module system. The modules will be installed in September and October, and the entire care area, a two-storey building will be ready to move into in December 2014.
Facade with an individual look
“We’re used to creating premises for different needs. What’s special in this case is that a care department needs a number of specific installations to enable the use of medical gas. Furthermore, it has a specially adapted façade, which has what we think is a very attractive and individual design,” says Gert Hedström at PCS Modulsystem.
LOCUM AB awarded PCS Modulsystem this contract – which includes the design, assembly and completion – after a public procurement process.
Following ground preparation work and the construction of the foundations, the assembly of the two-storey modules got underway in week 39, when the ground floor was in position after just two days. Assembly of the first floor was finished during week 41. Subsequently, work on the care department’s interior and exterior will be done up until residents start moving in later in the autumn. This includes the construction of the gate to the main building’s entrance.
