Convention centers stand empty as do hotels. Most dormitories are vacant. Currently, public officials across the country are planning to repurpose some of these spaces as hospital facilities for patients with COVID-19. While social distancing measures are proving effective, but even so, public health experts are anticipating a strain on health systems that will include a shortage of hospitals beds as the coronavirus spreads.

The task is not without its challenges. FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) is expected to release locations and construction plans with details for converting viable facilities including hotels and dormitories into hospital overflow facilities to treat COVID cases soon.

General contractors across the nation are gearing up for the work of converting existing facilities which will require Division 8 and 28 products and services.
