The installation and assembly of the shelters included the design, transportation, assembly and service installations. WSP project manager, Juan Llugdar, explains how WSP got involved.
“We offered our support for the installation of the two field hospitals as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility commitment. Initially we provided all those involved in the project with our Project Control System, a virtual tool for managing communications and the different work documents. We then helped Weatherhaven ensure that their electrical design conformed with Panamanian regulations and service conditions. In addition, we undertook a gap analysis to identify all aspects of design logistics, import of the shelters into Panama, transport to their allocated sites, assembly of the shelters and the installation of their services, including the locally-supplied foundations and wooden surfaces. We also designed the bathrooms adjacent to each facility.”
“We were very proud to be able to support the Canadian Embassy´s effort and our society with this much needed project to help the Government of Panama save lives and care for the population during the pandemic.”
