Mobile COVID-19

Testing Stations

Set to be deployed at LAX airport among others, D-Tech is an ongoing project for a suite of prefabricated mobile healthcare testing stations, designed by Grimshaw in partnership with SG Blocks and Osang Healthcare for on-site COVID-19 testing.

Built on a platform of  disused shipping containers, D-Tech uses a series of photovoltaic panels, a HEPA filtration system and medical grade furniture and work surfaces, allowing for a sustainable, self contained and rapidly deployable medical facility. 

D-tech is also highly modular, with possible configurations for one (collection), two (collection & testing), three (clinic), four (clinic & testing) and even five (Lab) containers together to offer state of the art, high volume COVID-19 screening with the ability to deliver results in as little as 3 hours using PCR machines (the gold standard in testing accuracy), while ensuring the the wellbeing and safety of medical personnel.
