New York, New York


This New York City Hospital, like every other health system in the world, worked tirelessly to help contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prior to the numbers spiking in New York, they began working with our team in early February to study options for a pre-manufactured construction solution to quickly address the anticipated increase in the number of patients.

After only two weeks of design development, we were able to expedite the pre-construction process and go into manufacturing for this ICU project in record time. 

DIRTT manufactured the solution in less than three weeks and the ForBuild team was able to install it in one week.  

Using this approach, the hospital had an Expanded Emergency Department ready to treat Coronavirus patients in just two months from kick-off to install.
