NEW YORK – The New York office of architecture studio Grimshaw has drawn up plans for a range of prefabricated coronavirus testing centres using shipping containers, named D-Tec.
The deployable technology line upcycles disused shipping containers as a foundation for a sturdy and sustainable solution to mass testing needs.
The first prototypes, slated for completion in June, are designed to facilitate a safe screening protocol while serving the greatest number of patients possible.
Grimshaw recognizes the important role that a rapidly deployable solution has in opening up greater access to testing that people can trust and rely onAndrew Whalley, Grimshaw chairman
Medical staff are inside the facility, separated from patients who approach the exterior. Testing can be done without contact between staff and patient.
An additional walk-up window allows patients to ask questions or follow up without interrupting the testing bays. Processing of samples is done within the facility in a properly equipped laboratory environment.
This facility can deliver highly accurate test results in approximately three hours.
