Specialized Accommodation Facility Built in Shortest Time Possible
Al Masaood Bergum (AMB), one of Abu Dhabi's leading modular and prefabricated building solutions providers and part of the Al Masaood Group of Companies, has revealed the successful construction of a specialized accommodation facility that can be best used as temporary and multipurpose accommodation facility, isolation wards, hospital bed-spaces, mobile laboratories or as medical centres. The newly built facility, which was built in a short span of time, features modules that can be affixed anywhere with short notice and can be utilized as makeshift hospital infrastructure and for quarantine purposes.
Al Masaood Bergum has the capacity of producing more than 25,000m2 of buildings per month. The specialized accommodation facility produced during the challenging short period measures around 15,000 square meters of building space to address urgent requirements brought about by the emergence of the coronavirus (COVID-19). This has resulted in the demand for facilities that can serve as both medical and isolation areas to hold those affected by the virus. The evolving situation with regards to the spread of COVID-19 has once again highlighted the endless advantages of modular and offsite construction.
In light of the COVID-19 situation, the company has also been able to design, fabricate and install a portable full body disinfection tunnel at the entry of the facility. The walk-through enclosure is designed for personnel decontamination purposes that can be rendered multiple person at a time upon entry. The portable system is also equipped with sanitizer to assure the safety of all AMB employees and related personnel using the facility.
Ghias Ur Rehman, Country Manager, AMB, said, "We have successfully been able to construct a specialized accommodation facility that can be best used for quarantine and medical purposes. Our company is backed by exceptionally talented and skilled individuals that lead in our building of world class, high quality products. We are proud to be able to partner and collaborate with various entities--providing them with top of the line modular and prefabricated building solutions. Our swift and efficient delivery of turnkey solutions has made AMB a top choice and key partner to our clients in the UAE."
The company has reportedly led the implementation of fast track projects in the emirate, which includes the fabrication, delivery and installation of a multipurpose facility for more than 500 people in a two-week timespan. The firm has also built a number of prefabricated accommodation units accompanied by dining halls, rooms, toilets and kitchen facilities. AMB has also fabricated, delivered and installed an ablution facility with all the required toilets, shower and wash basins within 24 hours which generally takes 5 days.
