Arden Engineering Constructors Collaborates on COVID-19 Field Hospital

May 1, 2020

Arden Engineering Constructors recently completed work on two COVID-19 field hospitals which add 935 patient beds for the anticipated COVID-19 surge in Rhode Island. The project had two 12-hour shifts running seven days a week from the time it began on April 6 until completion on April 18.

Arden provided and installed all of the HVAC piping, plumbing, ductwork, and medical gas piping for the project. Their in-house fabrication shop created finished bathroom piping systems ready for installation.

Unique Metal Works, an Arden Building Company, fabricated and installed approximately 6,000 feet of spiral exhaust ductwork with connection to plenum to provide “negative air flow” and prevent the escape of possible contamination. Their ability to do this provided both cost efficiencies and greater quality control for the project.

Earthwise Energy Technologies of Arden Building Companies, installed the monitoring and alarming for the negative pressure exhaust systems in the patient and pharmacy areas. The systems are monitored remotely using a graphic interface that allows needed adjustments to be made at any time, from anywhere.

MCAA thanks Arden Engineering Constructors for their efforts in support of healthcare providers, and for providing alternative care facilities for COVID-19 patients.
