Why Retail Temporary Electrics Are Key To Shopping Centre Reopening This Year
It’s been an extremely long twelve months, but we are finally starting to see promising signs that we are coming towards a brighter new normal with lockdown slowly coming to an end. We can all start to feel a little more optimistic that when our businesses finally start to reopen, they will actually stay open. We have all been through an awful lot as we’ve waited patiently for government guidance, worked through temporary closures and furlough schemes, and done our best to keep our businesses running while making sure that we’re doing right by our staff. It goes without saying that no one who is looking at reopening their business should do so without doing the necessary planning, taking every possible precaution, and making sure that they have the equipment to ensure it all goes smoothly.
As things stand, the British government plans to allow shops, along with other businesses like gyms, hair salons, and pubs with outdoor seating, to reopen on 12 April. Preparation is going to be absolutely crucial, and a lot of businesses will be working around the clock to make sure that they meet every criterion in the health and safety handbook.
Of course, it’s one thing for a country pub to plan for outdoor service in their garden as the weather starts to improve, but what about shopping centres? The challenges they have faced have been widely reported this year, as the twin factors of the economy and the pandemic combined to hit high street and shopping centre stores harder than ever before. Reopening in April isn’t just going to be about showing that it’s safe for customers to come back, it’s going to be about giving them a reason to return.
That preparation that we talked about isn’t just about mapping out a schedule, it’s about making sure that you have a contingency plan in place for every eventuality. And that’s where retail temporary power solutions are going to be so important.
Unpredictable Challenges Need Flexible Retail Temporary Electrics Solutions
As we said, businesses have not been short on challenges over this past year but one of the most significant that they have faced has been implementing the government’s Coronavirus health and safety guidelines as they change and showing that they can continue to operate safely and responsibly during this pandemic. For some businesses, it’s been as simple as putting up a couple of Perspex screens, installing a handwashing station and instituting a one-in, one-out policy. When it comes to shopping centres, we’re sure that we don’t need to tell you that it gets a little bit more complicated.
You are going to need to make sure that you have clearly designated walking routes that will keep people distant and moving in the right direction. You are going to need to make sure that you have hand washing and sanitising stations at regular intervals. What’s more, you are going to need to be implementing regular deep cleans of all spaces to ensure that there is as little chance for viral spread as possible. You may even have to engage in some extensive conversion work adapting existing spaces to ensure that social distancing can be maintained.
In short, you’re going to need to make sure that your power set-up is flexible enough to handle any unforeseen challenges, and that’s why we offer you a tailored service to make sure you get the right cable hire you need, for example. Our experience across a range of different sites and purposes means that we can work with you to find the best solution, taking into account everything from the weather to the length and configuration of cable requirements. We also pride ourselves on dependability and offering peace of mind, which is why we offer top of the line cable protection and cable ramp hire.
