Three facilities created by 64 modules

PCS Modulsystem has received a major new order from Östra Hospital in Gothenburg. In the first stage of the project, 64 modules have been assembled to form three separate buildings. To meet growing future healthcare needs, Östra Hospital is carrying out a major expansion programme between 2014 and 2018. At the Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital, an entirely new wing is being constructed, the gynaecology clinic is being expanded, and the main emergency department is being rebuilt to meet today’s demands for emergency care and hospital beds.
Relocation required
A re-building and expansion project of this scale requires considerable relocation of existing departments to ensure that the hospital continues to provide a normal service throughout the construction period. For this reason, PCS Modulsystem has been commissioned to deliver and assemble temporary facilities on the hospital site in the form of high quality module buildings. In the first phase, the project involves the assembly of 64 modules, with a total surface area of more than 1,700sqm, spread between three pavilions, which will enter service in March 2015.
Research and administration
The two largest pavilions are made up of 60 modules, 13 and 17 units, respectively, on two floors. The larger of these two buildings will house research facilities and will admit people participating in studies; and the slightly smaller building will house administrative workspace for the children’s hospital. To find sufficient space to house these facilities, with the necessary access roads, the parkland south of the infectious disease clinic has made way for the building work. Grassy areas and paths have been removed and the ground filled out with layers of foundations to support the modules.
School building
At the third building, which is located close to the children’s wing, there was no pre-existing area that could house the pavilion. Here, part of a green space, a turning area and a pavement have been used where, despite a height difference of 1.5 metres between ground and street level, we have successfully made the modules blend in with their surroundings. This pavilion will serve as a school building for patients at the children’s hospital. Östra Hospital, which is part of Sahlgrenska University Hospital, will lease the module buildings throughout the hospital’s re-building and expansion programme until its completion in 2018. PCS Modulsystem has been awarded a major new project at Östra Hospital in Gothenburg, in which we will install a total of 64 modules for three different buildings.
This is how a typical module assembly is done. Watch our film on the building of Assembly Nr.1 at Östra Hospital. >>
