Case Study: COVID-19 Quarantine Camps
As the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases grew exponentially throughout the year, many local and state governments found themselves struggling to contain outbreaks. One particular challenge faced by a government municipality in Louisiana involved the preventative practice of social distancing. In order to attempt to stop the spread of COVID-19, the municipality encouraged citizens to socially distance, but officials worried that living arrangements might prevent a large portion of the population from doing so. That’s where Cotton Logistics came in.
In sixteen days, the Cotton Logistics team built up a 265-bed community that Louisiana could use in order to isolate symptomatic individuals. During the course of the project, the team came across various challenges, including a location change, building design changes, and requests for ADA accessible units. Despite these challenges, Cotton Logistics constructed a temporary health facility customized to the client’s needs that followed safety protocols and regulations without sacrificing comfort, and all within the original timeline established for the project.
