Given the outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in South Korea, MiC modules which were designed and fabricated in Mainland China were transported to South Korea for establishing a negative pressure isolation ward with DfMA fitout to cope with the epidemic. Having delivered the modules to South Korea, it took only two days for the installation and the Seoul National University Hospital was ready for operation on 2 April 2020. The project took less than a month from design, fabrication, transportation, installation to operation and is hailed as the “Korean Huoshenshan” Hospital.  


  • Contractor: Broad Group
  • No. of MiC Modules: 15 (1st phase)
  • Types of Modules: Steel 
  • Number of Blocks: 2 (1st phase)
  • Number of Storey: 1-storey (1st phase, can add more storey if needed) 
  • Number of Beds: 24 (1st phase); A total of 500 beds in the 2nd and 3rd phases will be sent to Seoul, Busan and other places after modules production  
  • Project Period: 23 days  
  • Project Highlight: Each room is individually equipped with a fresh air machine that doesn’t use recycle air. By using a triple-zone, dual-channel design, combined with negative pressure fresh air system and automatic ozone concentration control technology, fresh air is drawn to the ward by the static differential pressure between different rooms and regions; at the same time, the indoor polluted air will also be sterilized and disinfected by the ozone discharged from the pipeline.
