Ingalls Hospital Outpatient Rehab needed to create employee and patient areas within a location they were leasing. PortaFab had already provided a modular office for the warehouse-like facility and Ingalls Hospital personnel felt comfortable that PortaFab could provide exactly what they needed for the rehabilitation facility.
Application: Soundproof area within rehabilitation facility
- Effective sound control
- Ability to re-locate easily
- Minimal disruption to existing business
Because Ingalls leased its facility, it was very important that the new structures be portable to accommodate future moves. Management also wanted to avoid disruptions to patient services and create a soundproof office environment to interview patients and evaluate their progress.
The need for quick installation and the flexibility to move the unit in the future were key factors in the decision to go with modular construction. Further evaluation with PortaFab's design team showed that a two-story unit with offices and a conference room placed above the patient evaluation area provided the most efficient use of the space.
The resulting two-story soundproof office was such a huge success that Ingalls quickly added a second building adjacent to the two-story to serve as an employee lunchroom and provide more office space.
"PortaFab's modular buildings provided us immediate use with minimal interruption. 95% of the installation was complete in just one and a half weeks and the overall installation was quick and efficient, causing virtually no disruption of services to our patients,"
— Mr. Terry Longo, Ingalls Hospital Outpatient Rehab
