Northside Hospital Gwinnett – STAAT MOD

Northside Gwinnett - STAAT Mod Patient Care Suite

Northside Hospital Gwinnett in Lawrenceville, Georgia is the first hospital in the Southeast to install the award-winning STAAT ModTM (Strategic, Temporary, Acuity-Adaptable Treatment) units to care for COVID-19 and other critically ill patients. The innovative STAAT Mod is highly engineered to hospital-quality standards and easily flexes to provide traditional inpatient capacity or critical care. The units can be operated with or without Airborne Infection Isolation Rooms (AIIR) that provide increased safety for both patients and caregivers. The acuity-adaptable rooms installed at Northside are a mix of critical care ICU, AIIR and lower acuity spaces such as step down, medical surgical, and observation rooms.

Designed exclusively in conjunction with HGA, the fully modular STAAT Mod units were designed as fully modular units, built offsite in the Boldt fabrication facility and shipped to the hospital site where they were placed on foundations, connected and commissioned. Fabrication of the units began in August and were on site by September, with the first wing open to patients by the end of October. The units, totaling 46,983 SF, are connected to hospital infrastructure and provide 71 new patient rooms and support space to care for a variety of health needs.

Project Highlights

  • STAAT Mod is an award-winning proprietary modular system exclusively through a Boldt / HGA partnership.
  • Using a fully modular approach allowed the team to go from the beginning of design to commissioning and turnover in fewer than five months.
  • All modular units were fabricated in Boldt’s prefabrication facility, then shipped to the project site on flatbed trucks for installation.
  • The Boldt team utilized a rigorous “Design For Manufacturing” approach, optimizing material selection and construction details to support efficient production, resulting in a 40% increase in labor efficiency vs. traditional construction.
