How long does it take to install a modular facility?

The short answer is less time that you might think. Modular facilities using Modern Methods of Construction can be developed far more quickly than traditional bricks and mortar buildings. As an example, from purchase order to handover, the construction of four modular day case operating rooms, recovery space and other support rooms at a hospital could take as little as 12 weeks or up 26 weeks if a bespoke Healthcare Space solution is required.

Discover how quickly a modular facility could arrive at your hospital site.

Can I rent or buy a facility?

The answer is yes to both. We offer a flexible procurement approach for our modular facilities with rental, rental/purchase, and purchase options available either directly, or through various frameworks.

Our mobile units are available for rental only, this allows us to be able to respond to urgent needs.

Is there a minimum rental period?

In general, there is a minimum 13-week rental period for our mobile facilities and we can construct a pricing model for our modular facilities from 26 weeks onwards. However, we adopt a flexible approach as our priority is always to base our solutions around our clients’ needs as opposed to imposing constraints.

What procedures can be carried out in a mobile operating room facility?

75% of all clinical procedure types carried out in a major acute hospital can be performed in our mobile operating rooms, from hip replacements to cataract surgery, endoscopy procedures to plastic surgery. Plus specialist cardiac surgery and complex cancer procedures. The complete list is far too long to include here, but you can find out more on our Heritage page.

What advantages do modular buildings offer over traditional healthcare buildings?

The main benefit is the speed they can arrive on-site and let the first patients through the door. MMC and off-site construction buildings are just as robust and high quality as traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ buildings, the big difference is that they can be built at the same time as the on-site substructure work is carried out.

Module design and MMC can cut construction times by up to 45%, reduce costs by 16% and increase productivity by 30% throughout the build process.1 There are environmental benefits too, with limited waste, and reduced carbon versus traditional build site deliveries.

As an example — St Joseph’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado found the off-site construction of their facilities shaved 72 days off the delivery time and reduced the cost by an estimated $4.3 million.2
