Time; 7.45 - 10.15am

The use of modular buildings in healthcare facilities is nothing new. Yet their recent renaissance as interim or permanent solutions and the drive for utilising modern methods of construction has made many NHS Trusts relook at their use. Interim facilities will still need to meet much of the same criteria as permanent buildings, particularly when dealing with specialist medical units.


Come and join us as our expert panel discusses the context and appropriateness of the use of modular buildings within our healthcare estate:


  • How to optimise the benefits of advanced off-site solutions

  • What are the procurement and design considerations for interim and permanent buildings?

  • How to specify modular buildings – the architect’s perspective

  • When is hiring more appropriate than purchase – a Trust’s view

  • Minimising disruption to patients and staff

  • When does interim become permanent?
