Davis Partnership Architects, an architecture and interior design firm in Denver, has designed a mobile, transportable clean, clinical environment for rapid response applications. Units are built and scheduled for delivery to Texas and the Southeast United States for review and demonstration. The goal is to have these units available to corporate facilities, healthcare facilities, and military applications for ready response needs whether it be man-made disaster, natural disaster, or pandemics.
The Mobile Transportable Clean Cube for Rapid Response Applications (MC3-RR) has dedicated air handling units with pharmaceutical-grade HEPA filtration, is modular and expandable, and can be configured into multiple care settings, including testing, triage, laboratory, team care and patient support (isolation, quarantine, and ICU step-down), and temporary bed and first-responder quarters. Units can be connected, stacked, and reconfigured, as well as hermetically sealed to support disinfection cycle, patient isolation, or to protect personnel.
The MC3-RR has an automated or manual cleaning cycle engineered by manufacturer Synergy Med Global Design Solutions (Golden, Colo) and Bioquell, a decontamination and infection control firm (Horsham, Pa.). Other partners on the project include BCER (engineer; Arvada, Colo.), Hunt Electric Corporation (electric design; Bloomington, Minn.), and Ridge Prefab & Manufacturing (Colorado Springs, Colo).
