Pre-fabricated anti-seismic hospital 


 

Modular prefabricated hospital project whose supporting structures, both vertical and horizontal, are made of steel.
The modules of anti-seismic hospital buildings are produced in the factory, transported on normal articulated lorries and assembled on site.

During and after strong seismic shocks in the hospitals, activities are concentrated and difficulties, urgencies and expectations are manifested perhaps more than in any other place.
It is essential to plan the management of hospital emergencies caused by seismic disasters, to deal with earthquake emergencies as a whole.
In order to plan and deal with seismic emergencies in hospitals, there are two essential points: the sites and operating hospitals must be safe and accessible to the point that in hospitals all perceive safety and protection and also that really and concretely all hospital activities can continue normally during seismic shocks.

The surgical operations, clearly, are the activities that during the seismic shocks present greater risks and difficulties.
The anti-seismic hospital must be the place where surgical activity continues normally, in complete safety for operators and operands, while seismic shocks shake the ground.

The current anti-seismic buildings withstand earthquake shocks, if they are not very violent, but they oscillate even more than the ground and in these conditions surgical operations are impossible, due to the dynamics that objects, equipment and people in the operating room undergo. There is another cause of difficulty for the surgical operations taking place during the earthquake, it is panic.

The aseismic hospital building, for which we have filed a patent, resists seismic shocks of high magnitude and in it all hospital activities can be carried out during seismic shocks, including the most delicate ones such as surgical operations.
Safety and protection, felt by everyone, avoid panic and confusion.

Except for the foundations, the building's framework in steel is dry, there are no mortars and bricks.
The stairs, whose steel structure is integrated into the building structure, are usable during the earthquake.
The elevators, the structure of which is integrated into the building structure, remain functional during seismic shocks. If the normal supply of electricity is suspended due to the earthquake, the UPS supplies electricity until the emergency electric generator is activated.
