UK: Bristol-based refrigeration contractor Space Engineering Services has supplied packs and cabinets for the new Tesco Express pop-up stores at both the NHS Nightingale sites at the NEC and Excel.
The vital new NHS premises at the UK’s exhibition sites in Birmingham and London are now operational, handling the increased volume of patients requiring essential care during the the Covid-19 pandemic.
With its established working relationship, the engineering team at Tesco approached Space Engineering Services to provide design expertise, packs and cabinets for both the new Tesco Express stores.
The stores are designed to give the vital NHS staff access to the food and household products they need on a 24-hour basis.
“Both sites provided significant challenges in terms of the short lead time required to become operational, and also the nature of the listed building at the Excel London, and the Marquee style at the NEC,,” explained Space Engineering’s key account director David Foreshew. “Outstanding teamwork from the design, project management, manufacturing and cabinet teams overcame these challenges.”
Despite the need for social distancing at the sites, the Space Engineering site teams, along with its sub-contractors, were able to execute the installations and commissioning by working on site 24 hours a day.
“It’s great to receive such positive feedback from the client, but truly humbling to have received thanks from NHS team members for our acknowledgement of their efforts on our refrigeration packs,” Foreshew added.
