Texo launches modular Coronavirus screening station guide as lock down set to ease

Texo Group

Texo Accommodation has launched a guide to setting up and installing modular Coronavirus screening station concepts for airports, heliports and ports as lock down conditions to prevent the spread of the virus are expected to ease.

Working in partnership with specialist aviation sector advisers and architects, Texo Accommodation’s guide provides owners and service providers at sites of Critical National Infrastructure insight into the design and deployment of temporary modular buildings designed to ensure the highest standards of safety, including employee and passenger testing facilities on departure and arrival.

The modular Coronavirus screening stations offer flexible, rapidly deployed facilities that are uniquely designed for sites of Critical National Infrastructure such as ports, airports and heliports, logistics centres and major construction sites where people are required to go to work to deliver essential services in the UK.

Texo Accommodation, through its land-based modular division, is on track to deliver a wider range of flexible office and welfare space, test centres, hand washrooms and sanitary units to schools, workplaces and public facilities across the UK.

Modular office and welfare space (locker rooms or canteen space), as well sanitary facilities with toilets, offer organisations the opportunity provide social distancing space on a flexible and temporary basis, allowing more sites to open as lock down eases. Space for handwashing before entry to or departure from premises also ensures increased care is provided for all visitors or attendees.

Richard Lamb, Managing Director of Texo Accommodation, said: “Requirements on how to work safely have been changing quickly and owners and managers of facilities have been adapting to ensure they can continue to support essential services.

“We expect virus testing and social distancing will be required for the foreseeable future. However, as lock down conditions ease there will be a need for flexible space to accommodate a return to the ‘new normal’.

“Our solution reflects the need for airport, heliport and port operators and the organisations that offer services at these locations to provide robust screening to prevent the spread of Covid-19, while also meeting requirements for social distancing and general welfare.”
