Dublin-based construction specialist Ardmac has today launched its MediPods products in Ireland and the UK. 

The MediPods provide a fast, flexible solution for modular, on-demand and high value medical workspaces to support the healthcare sector. 

The launch follows a partnership deal with Ardmac and US-based Germfree Laboratories, a specialist in the design, engineering and manufacture of advanced biological containment laboratories.

The MediPods are stand-alone modular buildings that are manufactured and fitted out in a controlled factory environment. They have been designed for applications including ICU and isolation units. 

The self-contained pods are designed for ease of delivery by road and are ready for rapid installation on site. 

Headquartered in Swords in Co Dublin with offices in Manchester, Cork, Craigavon and Brussels, Ardmac employs over 300 people.

Ronan Quinn, CEO at Ardmac, said the MediPod units are an innovative solution that can be constructed and deployed within weeks for a rapid response in times when business continuity, refurbishment and temporary location needs are critical.
