In order to respond rapidly where there is greatest need to care for COVID-19 stricken populations, medical and support facilities are being deployed by repurposing existing facilities or sending mobile units into the field.
These COVID-19 response facilities must comply with local regulations and permitting for air, water, and wastes including biohazards. They must also protect the workers and the public being served during use and disinfected afterwards. Geosyntec can help.
What We Offer
- Rapid response support for temporary and emergency response mobilization, laydown, facility construction, and support
- Utility coordination, emergency generator, traffic control planning, layout and design of support facilities
- Quality control and quality assurance of contractors, vendors, and service providers to support construction, operation and demobilization and site restoration
- Permitting, monitoring, and compliance support throughout deployment
- Support for remote and sparsely resourced locations
Geosyntec can assist response facility operators in securing necessary environmental permits and monitor compliance. Our occupational health and building health specialists, toxicologists, and risk assessors bring expertise in indoor air quality including management of airborne pathogens to help reduce exposures and aid environmental security for on-going operations. Geosyntec can also develop demobilization and site restoration plans including protocols for disinfection of utilized areas.
For owners of properties repurposed to support government COVID-19 responses, we can serve as an onsite representative to see that your property is cared for during and properly restored after the use.
