Norwood has helped Medicom create a facility that is manufacturing 2.3 million masks a day as the UK continues to fight COVID-19. Medicom identified an existing warehouse building as a facility that could be converted for mask production to enable rapid upscaling of its existing PPE output. The requirement was for conversion of the existing asset to make it suitable for mask manufacturing, and the strategy was to create a smaller building within the 16m high warehouse unit, to accommodate both production and support functions.
CMB Engineering designed and installed a steel structure within the legacy building and Norwood developed a cladding system to complete the new internal building shell. Working collaboratively with the client and CMB Engineering, Norwood designed and installed the company’s Mediline modular steel partitioning system to create a manufacturing environment and offices, along with metal pan ceilings and a walk-on ceiling.
Norwood created a steel joist system to tackle the large spans and take the load of the self-supporting Mediline partition system. Each Mediline installation is tailor made to the client’s specific requirements. The fully demountable, double skin bi-panel system consists of prefabricated panels that friction lock to a galvanised framework, enabling the fast, secure installation that was so mission critical on the Medicom project. The system is entirely flush and all power and data services are contained within the partition void, with ease of panel removal for future maintenance.
