For An Indefinite Problem
Most people didn’t expect the quarantine to last for this long. Some countries have handled it better than others, but what was expected to take perhaps a few months, at most, to get through, is still dominating our lives deep into 2020 with no sure sign of stopping anytime soon. The problem isn’t going to last forever, of course, but it turned out not to be the short-term engagement many expected it to be. The keyword is indefinite. We know the problem will be solved at some point, but we don’t know when. This is an indefinite problem and it requires indefinite solutions.
Addressing the needs of our communities through this crisis demands the ability to deploy at a moment’s notice, and to provide a safe, sanitary, stable environment where our medical professionals can do what they need to do. In other words: A tent won’t cut it, a permanent building is a bit much, but a shipping container is perfect.
Where a permanent building requires months of construction time, and cannot be moved once erected, office shipping containers can be dropped into place wherever they’re needed most, and just as easily relocated when they’re needed elsewhere. Where a tent may crumble under even mild weather after months of use, an insulated shipping container is as sturdy as most homes and commercial buildings.
This is to say that a shipping container is an indefinite solution. When you set up a medical service station or office right now, there’s no telling how long you’re going to be situated. You could be there for one, two, three, or six months. Right now there is simply no telling. The problem is indefinite, and the solution should be as well.
“There is simply no telling” isn’t always what we want to hear, especially when it comes to a national medical emergency. But at least we have solutions that are built specifically for situations like these. There may be no telling when this pandemic will end, but a shipping container will outlast it.
Custom-Built Office Shipping Containers
You can order a standard container for any purpose from offices to storage to, well, shipping. Simply select a 20-foot shipping container or a 40-foot shipping container and you’re ready to go. But, the real appeal for many users is the fact that they can be custom-built to order. If you need windows, if you need insulation, if you need the container to be wired for electricity, your supplier can send you precisely what you’re after.
Because of the way shipping containers are built, customization options are nearly endless. Multiple containers can be stacked and stairs installed for a two-story semi-permanent structure, and any wall can be cut for windows or doors without compromising the structural integrity. Many trailers are essentially what-you-see-is-what-you-get. Cutting a new window into the wall of a trailer could collapse the entire thing. A shipping container is just a metal box, ready to be used for any purpose for which it is needed.
Adapt and Improve
The problem that we are facing in the healthcare sector right now is one that is still evolving. Given all of the complicating factors at play, there is no blueprint for this. We are still learning how exactly to handle Covid-19 and all that that entails. An end is coming someday, but it’s not yet in sight. Until that day comes, what we need are solutions that are adaptable.
The medical professionals at the frontlines are our most valuable asset in the fight against this invisible enemy. The rest of us can only do our best to ensure that they have all of the resources that they need. Shipping containers offer a fast, sanitary, safe, sturdy structure from which this fight might be stationed.
