Marquees for School Covid Testing

Marquees for School COVID-19 Testing

The NHS Test and Trace documentation regarding the COVID-19 National Testing Programmes includes some key requirements:

• “Test site flooring must be non-porous”
• “Test site must be well lit and have good airflow”
• “One-way direction of travel for test subjects. If not possible, enough room should be provided for test subjects to exit room whilst maintaining social distance”
• “Clear division between swabbing and processing area”

We can provide marquee structures that are ideal for the task. The challenges include ensuring the right level of ventilation despite the winter weather, providing the necessary flooring, and sometimes needing to build in restricted spaces. Fews have the experience to overcome such issues with technical expertise, and can offer such options as:

  • PVC sided tents for building in tight, awkward spaces
  • Hard walls for ease of cleaning and sanitisation
  • Commercial grade vinyl flooring
  • Wind rated and snow loaded to BS6399
  • Easy to partition to create discrete areas
  • Can be erected on almost any surface including concrete, tarmac and grass
  • Lighting, heating and air-conditioning
  • Each structure can be stand-alone or connected to another building
  • Bespoke access ramps
  • Fast installation
