Modular facilities solutions for hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry

Renew or expand the hospital’s capacity

If you’re looking for high-quality modules for hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry, then you’ve come to the right place. Our solutions satisfy stringent requirements in terms of cleanliness, reliability and rapid delivery time.

Premises are subject to exacting requirements, and we have extensive experience of delivering highly complex facilities. We can offer you facilities solutions for the majority of clinical environments, including operating theatres, laboratories, intensive care and diagnostics. Come to us if you need new, purpose-built facilities, if you need a temporary extension for existing premises or if you’re looking to expand capacity. We can supply solutions for both permanent and temporary needs.

Interview with Lena Jangentorp about how prefabricated operating theatres provided increased surgical capacity for Karlskoga hospital during the renovation.

Why use our solutions?

A flexible solution for both permanent and temporary facilities. The modules can easily be relocated within the hospital complex, or to other hospitals or locations.
Short delivery time compared with on-site projects. Average of around 18 weeks from start of production to final inspection.
Minimal disruption on site – Sensitive, existing services experience minimal disruption owing to short period at construction site (roughly five weeks).
Rent or purchase depending on your needs; for example a temporary or permanent solution.

Sustainable solutions – Our prefabricated modules can be relocated, reused, renovated and adapted.
Industrial premium – Products designed to last. Robust steel construction that facilitates a high degree of prefabrication, an effective work environment, heavy process equipment and heavy lifting. Manufactured in a safe indoor environment in Sweden.
Risk mitigation – 95% of the construction work takes place in a production facility, which results in a ‘plug & play’ solution. This helps minimise risk in terms of schedule and budget.

Prefabricated facilities solutions

Assess and start

Are prefabricated solutions the right thing for you? We will help you assess whether and how our modular solutions could allow you safe and quick access to new capacity. If you decide to proceed with our solutions, we will manage your project and take full responsibility for the entire process, in partnership with you.

Rent or buy

Choosing a modular solution when you need to update the hospital or expand its capacity is a fast, safe and flexible solution. You can opt to rent or buy the unit. With this flexible solution, the modules can also be moved to other hospitals and locations, thereby contributing to increased sustainability from both a financial and environmental perspective. We will work with you to identify the solution that suits you best.

Modular or on-site construction?

In our case, modular and on-site construction differ in terms of the building technique used and the construction period, as opposed to function or requirements. The same highly stringent regulations apply for both methods. The modular method involves a much shorter construction time, and building takes place in a production plant, which means far less disruption on site and minimises the risk of errors. The method also results in more efficient project design based on the customer’s unique requirements. All in all, our production method gives you a high degree of predictability for your schedule and budget.

How quickly can we have the facilities in place?

Reduce delivery time by up to 50% compared with on-site projects

Prefabricating turnkey structures in modular form substantially cuts the time it takes to complete the project. Prefabrication means that foundation work can be done in the production plant alongside the manufacture of the modules. This can cut the time it takes by up to 50%* compared with on-site projects. So it makes sense for us to contribute our expertise from early project planning stages onwards.

Once manufacturing at the module plant in Emtunga is complete, it takes roughly three to five days to assemble the modules on site, followed by installation, which can take four to five weeks depending on the scope of the project. Our delivery takes an average of around 18 weeks from start of production to final inspection.

*This is based on our many years of experience, but is also confirmed in several studies, including the study Modular construction: From projects to products, by McKinsey & Company.. Read the McKinsey study here

A shorter delivery time means:

– more time is freed up for potential subsequent project stages
– new facilities enable the organisation to start generating income quicker (ROI)
– faster access to new capacity
– a shorter construction period on site, which means less disruption for other services
– sensitive existing operations face minimal disruption

How to maintain better control and management of the project

Effective risk management

Prefabrication of turnkey structures has positive effects from a risk perspective.
The modules are made in heated premises with a safe work environment, good access to expertise and effective logistics management. Most of the parts are ready-made and tested prior to leaving the production plant.

Our approach to construction means that from a risk perspective:
– sensitive operations face minimal disruption
– there is minimal impact on surrounding business operations
– access to expertise and materials is guaranteed in regions that are harder to reach
– the project is controlled and managed more efficiently
– there is a single point of contact for the customer, which aids control and communication
– the construction site is less vulnerable to weather conditions
– testing can be carried out by the customer at the production plant prior to delivery

How much does it cost to build modular care facilities?

Opting for prefabricated, modular facilities is highly cost effective in terms of total cost.

The product price is one aspect of the total cost. But what really affects this cost is factors such as delivery time, work environment, impact on surrounding businesses and the area, as well as risk mitigation. That’s why it’s important early on in the process to have control of the other factors that affect the total cost besides price, and to understand how they affect total cost. Of course, the details of a calculation vary from project to project, but common to all projects is the fact that substantial gains are made when these aspects are reflected early on in the customer’s requirements.

A low price doesn’t always mean low total cost if other cost drivers have a greater impact. Minimising risks and quickly finishing a new structure means customers are able to get up and running with their new facilities faster and thus start generating income.

A shorter lead time and prefabricated solution from Swedish Modules affects the ultimate total cost by:

– enabling the property owner to generate rental income sooner
– allowing quicker access to new capacity for the user
– causing minimal disruption to ongoing hospital services during the construction period
– causing minimal disruption for local business operations
– reducing the risk of patients having to be sent to other regions
– allowing opportunities to rent facilities, which creates cash flow advantages

What our customers say

From a cost perspective, it was very positive that we could increase capacity – firstly, as we did not have to finance patients’ care in another county due to the healthcare guarantee and secondly, because we could retain all employees. But there are also other costs that need to be taken into account in the bigger picture as well, such as healthcare queues that can arise during the renovation period, which means patients’ personal suffering, which is the biggest cost of all.
