Dialysis unit as a product

MountingThe need for dialysis therapy produces a need for dialysis departments, which can be established in or near by a hospital, an independent practice or in some cases a mobile unit.

Creating a dialysis unit means normally building in the traditional way with long term planning and more or less difficult execution. We have to understand that no customer want´s to have a building site. He just want´s to have the perfect result. Consequently most of the leading building companies changed their advertising from showing awesome building sites to

 

presenting clean and perfectly made buildings. On this background it is a big advantage to present a prefabricated module system as a product.

Off-site Construction

Modular conceptA modular building is constructed using three-dimensional boxes or „modules”. The building is built to regional code, but created in a factory. Interior and exterior sheathing, utility lines, interior partitions are all completed in the factory. The modules are 90-95% complete when they come off the assembly line in the factory. After completion in the factory, a modular

 

building is shipped to the site, then attached to a permanent foundation at the building site. Several modules will be connected side-by-side or stacked to create a finished house. When completed, modular buildings are composed of several modules fastened together. Once the building is attached, it is considered real estate.

  • Cell

Pros:

  • Integrated, pre-packaged economical solution.
  • Maximum of predictability in time and cost.
  • Work repetition means worker specialisation.
  • Time frame is greatly reduced.
  • A climate-controlled factory environment means perfect conditions without external disturbance.
  • Less impact on the building site.

Example

As an addition for an established hospital in Dubai we have designed a small 6 Unit Dialysis Clinic with the possibility to an enlargement.
