Rapid Development Structures In Response To COVID-19

Rapid Development Structures In Response To COVID-19

In a time of undeniable uncertainty, we understand that businesses are at risk. There are a variety of unique circumstances effecting your daily operations. From recently increased compliances with the health departments, to lack of storage or warehouse space available to meet increased orders for the current demand.

Barlens are already working with a variety of Australian departments and businesses to roll out temporary structure solutions to the rapidly changing requirements. Below is a brief outline of how we are already assisting Australians and their businesses.

Medical assistance stations

With the recent impact of COVID-19, there is a high demand for virus testing stations in both a drive through and walk in clinic capacity around Australia. Using a vinyl structure means that we can pull the walls off, clean them and then reinstall in a minimal amount of time.

Barlens also  can install hard wall (shell) structures to act as pop up/temporary hospitals to combat the additional space requirements associated with higher patient numbers. These structures can be customised to suit your needs and are the perfect solution as opposed to the traditional brick and mortar buildings that can take months to install. The hard shell structures look like a traditional building from initial glance and can include windows and multi-story options as shown below.


Hospitality kiosks

Many local businesses have been affected by the changes in regulations surrounding COVID-19, especially the hospitality industry. Moving to takeaway only options and essentially altering the way in which they do business altogether. Barlens has been working closely with many of these businesses to install temporary kiosks to assist with these changes, this includes but are not limited to:

  1. Pickup stations that are equipped for social distancing
  2. Order packing site sheds
  3. Customer queuing stations

All of these structures can be installed in a variety of sizes and shapes to meet your demands. Click here to see an example of a drive through station recently installed.


Commercial warehouses

When supply might not meet demand, or production is rapidly increased without much notice/time to prepare, you may require an alternative space to store your stock. This space will understandably have a list of requirements that are unique to your business, potentially including, but not limited to:

  1. High  ceilings
  2. Temperature control
  3. Lockable and/or roller doors
  4. Elevated flooring
  5. Multi-evel layout
  6. Shelving capacity for stock management


These structures can be installed almost anywhere, from the car park out the front of your already established warehouse, acting as an extension, or located on an external property.
