Losberger De Boer builds first temporary vaccination centres in Germany

15/12/20

 

In order to prevent the large-scale vaccination campaign from overloading the regular healthcare institutions, the German municipality of Recklinghausen commissioned temporary building specialist Losberger De Boer to design and install a mass vaccination centre. Within two weeks, the company built a 1900 m2 centre where 2000 people can be vaccinated each days. The building will be in use for six to twelve months and is one of the largest vaccination locations in the entire Nordrhein-Westfalen region, home to 18 million people. 

Ready after only 2 weeks: the vaccination centre in Recklinghausen

 

Vaccinating in disinfected air

The vaccination centre is designed to allow a large flow of people to be vaccinated safely. It is equipped with a newly designed and innovative hygiene concept, which disinfects the air when the structure is not in use. This results in a completely sterile environment. The system also provides excellent ventilation. The centre is designed to ensure a fast flow and sufficient distance between visitors as well as between visitors and medical professionals. In combination with the hygiene system, this results in an extremely low contamination risk.

 

Safe workplace for care workers

The large-scale vaccination facility was designed by Losberger De Boer engineers, in close collaboration with healthcare professionals. The company indicates that it has a blueprint ready, which can be used to build a large number of vaccination centres in a matter of weeks. "The plan is ready," Detlef Schmitz, Managing Director, begins. "This vaccination centre is designed to allow more people to be vaccinated safely for longer periods of time than at regular vaccination locations. The design also provides a good, safe workplace for the care workers who carry out the vaccination.”

Now the only thing that's missing is the vaccine

 

Sufficient material for rapid roll-out

Because the centre consists of modular building structures, it can be adapted to each location.

"We can adjust the scale to suit the location or local conditions," says Schmitz, indicating that the company is ready for a further roll-out. "We have sufficient materials and manpower available to install vaccination centres on a large scale within weeks.”

 

Since the start of the pandemic, Losberger De Boer has adapted its structures to support healthcare professionals. Its buildings have been used worldwide as triage centres, emergency hospitals and test sites. Losberger De Boer is one of the largest providers of modular buildings in the world.
