London’s Response to the Pandemic
Wednesday 26 August, 2020
In May of this year, as the rules of lockdown began to lift, London was planning its response.
As the busiest and biggest city in the UK, we knew that our clients would be looking for ways to attract workers and visitors back to the high streets safely and respectfully. We have installed over 400 flags along some of the most prominent retail high streets with positive messages of support for key workers and the NHS.
We have supplied over 10,000 floor stickers to promote social distancing and encourage one-way systems.
We have also installed 150 way-finders with hand-sanitising dispensers. These have been distributed in high footfall areas, along pavements and outside tube stations, to provide the public with the opportunity to clean their hands regularly.
These projects were enriching for us.
We were able to rely on our trusted suppliers who adapted to these new requirements and delivered under challenging restrictions. Operational management was quick to adjust to the new rules, and we developed new procedures to keep our staff and the public safe, whilst carrying out this work.
We’re very proud of the work we’ve completed over the last four months, as part of the response to this pandemic, and it’s been great to work with the local leaders of London who have put in the time and effort to keep London open and safe for business.
