Developed by Casagrande Laboratory in association with Bjørnådal Architecture Studio from Norway and Sjaelso Finland they created an emergency hospital made up of cross-laminated timber.
“Designing a solution where one can fast build emergency hospitals on the parking lots of existing hospitals. We are using prefabricated engineered wooden modules, measuring 2,5 x 5 meters – the same as one car parking place.”
“With the CLT Emergency Hospital, the construction methodology is the same as with prefabricated modular apartment buildings – only simpler. We can assemble different temporary combinations of patient treatment and other modules. The same modules can be disassembled and transported from place to place.”
