The NHS and modular buildings
This year has made many of us even more thankful for the NHS as they were on the frontline fighting this virus for all of us. We as a country showed our gratitude by coming together and clapping for our heroes every week. Millions of pounds were raised and donated to support the institution with even 99-year-old veteran Captain Tom raising over 1.5 million himself by walking laps of his garden.
Modular buildings have long been used by the NHS for a variety of uses, especially in recent years when expanding due to their cost-effective nature and quick construction and set up time. Most NHS hospitals were at full capacity due to the virus and many emergency temporary ‘Nightingale’ hospitals were opened to help cope with high demands. Many of these used pre-existing buildings such as London’s ExCel centre but some utilised modular buildings. Many hospitals used modular buildings throughout the pandemic to help with extra wards, testing stations as well as spaces for staff to isolate away from home. Davlav’s sister company Maxi Space themselves provided the NHS in Jersey with clinics, staff shower rooms and accommodation.
Maxi Space and modular buildings have helped a range of businesses and individuals in combatting and adapting to the ever-changing landscape we find ourselves in by creating quick and affordable spaces. Check out Maxi Spaces website to see how they can help you.
