Healthcare facilities are often faced with an urgent need to add offices, clinics, laboratories, or storage space. On the one hand, container houses could be used to build entire hospitals—including emergency rooms, shipping container medical clinics, and specialist and inpatient wards. On the other hand, it is also possible to add a modified shipping container to an existing healthcare building or to add a prefabricated entrance vestibule. Shipping container clinics are suitable for both permanent and relocatable healthcare spaces.
Advantages of Shipping Container Clinic
Quality: Since the shipping container medical clinic is built indoors, no building materials will be damaged by the weather. Working in indoor facilities also facilitates precision fabrication, resulting in tighter building envelopes and straighter walls.
Speed: Modular construction is much faster than traditional construction because the fabrication of container houses is carried out simultaneously with site preparation and foundation construction.
Reduce distractions: Much of the building construction takes place indoors, which means less disruption to traffic and pedestrians around your site. This is especially important for augmenting existing medical facilities, as it means less disruption to the patients using them.
Can be relocated: You can choose a portable medical container house. For example, a portable shipping container medical clinic for vaccination or breast cancer screening could serve different rural communities at different times.
