150-Bed Prototype of 500-Bed Facility to Be Assembled From Polymer Composite Panels
The Daedalus Project, Inc.; AT&T Government Solutions; Radian Inc. Collaborate on Demonstration project
ALEXANDRIA, Va., July 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Three northern Virginia companies today announced plans to assemble a prototype facility outside of
Pittsburgh next month that could be used for isolating patients in the event of a terrorist attack with weapons of mass destruction, containing a SARS
outbreak, or providing shelter for victims of natural disasters.
Assembly of the approximately 6,000 square-foot, 150-bed building, called an Emergency Isolation and Treatment System (EITS), will begin in mid-August
and will be open to the public during the last week of August.
The Daedalus Project, Inc., of Alexandria, Va., (www.daedalusproject.com) developed the polymer composite panels to meet the requirement for low-cost
housing in developing countries. Corporate partners in the project include AT&T Government Solutions, of Vienna, Va., which is providing leading edge
voice and data communications, and Radian, Inc., also of Alexandria, Va., which is providing engineering and technical support. The group is currently
seeking a hospital supply company to join the consortium.
The EITS project is part of federally-funded effort that is being conducted through the Allegheny County Bureau of Emergency Service, and RISC, Inc.,
a non-profit organization located in the county. The prototype will be assembled on the grounds of a Westinghouse facility in Monroeville, Pa.,
outside of Pittsburgh.
