The Novel Coronavirus Pandemic has drastically altered the workplace and businesses have responded by creating plans for a safer work environment that protects employees and customers alike form risks connected to COVID-19. The Milnes Company has been tasked by a local industry client to design and construct a new Medical Screening Facility capable of screening the entire staff as they enter the facility. Due to the ongoing need to screen employees every day, Milnes is using a modular style of construction utilizing a completely finished 40’ recycled shipping container, so not to impede on the current screening process.
Milnes Survey department conducted a topographic survey of the facility’s existing COVID check-in station in order to establish locations of required foundations and adjustments needed in the field to level the new screening facility.
Milnes Construction is responsible for the interior fit-out of the shipping container, complete with metal stud walls, spray foam insulation, drywall, and two dedicated screening rooms. This scope is being performed at Milnes Headquarters and will be transported to the jobsite via truck and crane. Once the container is set in place, a 1400 SF pole-frame structure will be built around the container to provide shelter from the elements for the employees. This scope will take place during off-hour shifts order to work around incoming employee traffic.
