Lakes delivers for COVID-19 hospital

  • 5 May 2020

Lakes, a leading manufacturer of showering spaces and a carbon neutral company, has proudly supported the NHS with the delivery of bi-fold showering spaces to the Royal London Hospital.

Supplied by bathrooms and washrooms specialists Neville Lumb, Lakes showering spaces contributed to a project to turn two out-of-use floors at the hospital into an area for almost 180 beds to treat COVID-19 patients.

The project, led by main contractor Wates, is being delivered in another record time – less than five weeks after it began.

Up to 600 people have been working 24 hours a day, in two 12-hour shifts patterns to get the job done that would normally have taken 12 months to complete. The two floors also includes 117 clinical support rooms.

Mike Tattam, Lakes Sales & Marketing Director, commented: “It’s without doubt a very challenging time for many people and businesses across all sectors. No-one could have foreseen the extent of impact this pandemic would have on families and industries.

“But I’m extremely proud to be part of a sector that has truly risen to the occasion. Across our supply chains we have seen immense effort from manufacturers through to distributors and contractors, working hard to deliver on essential projects in order to protect our NHS and give patients affected by Covid the best possible care.

“It’s an absolute honour to have played a part in this industry-wide effort.”
