Why Go Modular When There’s Stick Built?

Stick built, hard wall designs have been the most popular choice of hospital pharmacies prior to 2017, but statistics show, choosing modular throughout the world is rising.

What is modular, and why is it a worthy contender to stick built?

Cleanrooms based on prefabricated, pre-tested modules that are meant to be assembled in a custom-configured manner are considered modular and seen as complete, turn-key solution.

We’ve been using stick built in this hospital forever. Why would I need to change?

It’s a relevant question, and could equally be explained by two words: Future proof.

Cleanrooms usually need some form of remodeling or modification every five years or so to make them safer and more efficient. When dealing with a stick built, there are many people involved from different companies to build or modify one compounding facility. It's possible to have six or more separate businesses to deal with because of this, which can be time consuming, expensive, and a headache to deal with. With a turn-key solution, the entire physical infrastructure can be managed by a single provider.

Additional benefits to modular builds

  • Software Integration: In contrast to traditional facilities, which require the integration, programming and optimization of software management systems to be carried out on site, modular facilities arrive with management software and controls already pre-installed, programmed and optimized.

  • Project management: Pre-configured modular designs mean that the installation process, whether a new construction or reconfiguration of an existing modular cleanroom is significantly less complex resulting in a quicker, less costly, project management with minimal interruptions.

QleanSpace: More than just modular

Preparing your organization for an initial or renewal accreditation towards USP 797 and USP 800 is one of the many, included benefits of having a QleanAir solution. All the planning, financing, building, monitoring, servicing, and unbeatable guarantee with one, sole provider.
