Industry: Emergency Relief
Structures Location: Portage la Prairie & Winkler, MB
Structure Size: 14′ x 25′ and 18’x25′
Structure Use: COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing
Opportunity: A local health region approached Winkler Structures about quick-erect shelters that could be used for Covid-19 drive-thru testing. The structure also had to protect healthcare workers from the elements as they conducted the tests. The shelters also had to be portable and quickly set up.
Solution: Winkler Structures loaned the use of a 18′ x 25′ truss structure for the vehicle drive-thru in Winkler. Winkler also designed an adjoining 7′ x 15′ fabric structure so that healthcare workers were protected from the elements as they went back and forth to the cars. For the Portage testing site, Winkler Structures used a QuickBuild Utility frame. Both shelters can be easily relocated as required.
