CRTKL/Patriot Collaboration for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Using PODS Cited in Building Design + Construction

WASHINGTON, D.C. — April 21, 2020 — CallisonRTKL worked with the facilities and infrastructure firm Patriot in a collaborative process on a design-build project for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. This project uses PODS to develop containers that can be repurposed into isolation units for alternative healthcare facilities treating COVID-19 positive patients.

Modifications to existing POD containers were made to be used as a rapid response airborne infection isolation room (AIIR) and designed to enhance Healthcare Personnel (HCP) protection during care of infectious patients.
