M.C. Dean is actively supporting the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (USACE) mission to alleviate hospital capacity issues amid the coronavirus outbreak, by transforming non-healthcare buildings into Alternate Care Facilities. M.C. Dean was awarded two USACE contracts to retrofit the Miami Convention Center and the Washington, D.C. Convention Center, adding more than 1,000 hospital rooms dedicated to COVID-19 patients.

“It’s rewarding to join the fight against this pandemic,” said Bill Dean, M.C. Dean chief executive officer. “By applying our modular delivery expertise, we’re helping speed USACE’s efforts to turn convention centers into hospitals in a matter of days or weeks, rather than months.”

At the Miami Beach Convention Center, M.C. Dean is helping turn the 500,000-square-foot exhibit space into a functioning 450-bed hospital. Our 50-person team began mobilization in less than 24 hours and worked for eight long consecutive days to establish the distribution and backup power systems needed to transition the convention center into a temporary hospital.

This 473,000-square-foot space will support COVID-19 patients in Washington, D.C., and surrounding Virginia and Maryland counties. M.C.
