How did we do it?
Because of COVID-19 measures, customers at 15 Groep Autoveiligheid vehicle testing centres had to wait outside for their vehicles. At the group’s request, Escape Events sought a solution to protect waiting customers from the elements. The covered waiting areas had to be constructed without delay, outside of business hours. In most scenarios they had to adjoin existing buildings and have sufficient height to cater for door height, whilst retaining adequate visibility of the immediate surroundings to facilitate safe vehicle exiting. Veldeman proved to be the ideal partner for Escape Events.
Veldeman required just 5 days to prepare for this project. On-site visits were made to all the testing centres, all necessary measurements were taken and special bespoke components were made by our in-house finishing department. After meticulous planning, the 15 waiting areas were constructed in just 7 days; in the evenings, at night-time and over a weekend. Elevated alu halls were the final choice, measuring 7.5 x 25m wide and mostly 5m in depth, with transparent sides. The waiting areas will be used for at least 5 months.
