Remote Trauma – a global specialist in safety and health risk management, operating mainly in the Television and Film production industries. They deliver risk assessments for working environments, flexible training programmes for staff, as well as providing experienced and professionally qualified medical, safety and security personnel.
The client needed to reach specific locations across the UK within a short timeframe and achieve the necessary PCR testing and diagnostics to counter the threat of COVID-19 to the continued, successful running of their clients’ operations.
A Controlled Environment designed, installed, cleaned and commissioned by Guardtech built to the following specification:
Structural: GT Shell Plus PIR Wall Panels, GT Lid Max PIR Ceiling Panels, GT Access Lite Powder-Coated Aluminium Doors, GT Deck Plus Vinyl Floor Capped & Coved.
Electrical: 13-amp & 3-phase power in three-compartment PVC trunking.
Mechanical: Wall-mounted cassette and external condenser.
Furniture: Bespoke Trespa work benches, mobile sinks, stainless steel stepover benches with compartments, transfer hatch.
Timeframe: The pandemic meant that haste was of the essence. The technology we developed was a hybrid between utilising the largest on-road vehicle that could be sourced immediately, requiring no additional/special licences, while delivering a lab space to provide testing and analysis while parked in multiple, varied and often challenging UK locations.
Sourcing: A vehicle had to be found that was of adequate size to create a fully functional lab environment in the cargo area with sufficient room for patient receipt and sample analysis.
HVAC: The mobile lab needed to be temperature-controlled to keep samples at an adequate ambient temperature while remaining cool enough for patient care and operator comfort.
Electrical: Due to the nature of the lab being a mobile asset, revised electrical requirements needed to be taken into consideration to facilitate a compliant electrical installation that could accommodate all lab equipment and as well as run the necessary plant for the lab.
Structural: The internal fit-out of the van needed to conform to the material specification of a standard laboratory while considering additional factors such as upgraded insulation and weatherproofing.
Guardtech Commercial Director Mark Wheeler said: “Being part of the national effort to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic is a real source of pride for our business.
“Helping innovative firms like Remote Trauma continue to provide their amazing services to integral industries, like TV and film, which bring so much joy to the wider public, is something we love to be a part of. The team, once again, did an amazing job here.”
