Premier Modular wins contract for Covid-19 testing sites

Offsite construction specialist Premier Modular has won a contract for the provision of modular buildings for Covid-19 testing sites across the UK.

The contract has been awarded by the Department for Health and Social Care to support an increase in testing capacity during the pandemic.

Each standalone test site has a 1,200 sq ft purpose-designed testing building pre-installed with eight patient cubicles, hygienic walls, separate staff entrance and exit, test collection and drop off zones and a family testing room.

The buildings are manufactured at Premier’s offsite production centre in Brandesburton, East Yorkshire.

The contract also includes the supply of welfare facilities in three buildings to accommodate a PPE room, stores, test preparation, staff restroom, kitchenette and toilets, as well as essential services – water supply, wastewater collection and electricity generators.

Modular buildings have already been installed by Premier at testing sites in Bolton, Glasgow, Nottingham and Havant. The contract was procured through the Crown Commercial Service and will be completed this autumn.

David Harris, managing director at Premier Modular, said: “We are very pleased to be playing our part in the national effort to support the government in increasing Covid19 testing capabilities in the current pandemic.

“This is a vital initiative to help safeguard public health. It is also a fantastic example of how modular construction can help the NHS respond to local needs and an urgent requirement to rapidly increase capacity.”
