Prefab builder launches range of affordable coronavirus modules

Brooklyn-based prefabrication specialist SG Blocks has launched a series of multi-use containers in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The firm has listed a number of applications for the product, including treatment rooms, housing for healthcare workers and those undergoing quarantine.

Paul Galvin, SG Blocks’ chairman, said: "We believe these products can offer states, cities and employer’s options for those in their care or custody.

"They are designed to help students, patients, health professionals and others exposed to COVID-19 isolate in a safe place. Those that work in the service economy, especially emergency and medical personnel, should have an option other than going home to risk infecting loved ones."
