How did we do it?
During the remodelling (renovation) of its stores, Delhaize needs a fast, effective solution to continue serving its customers. The temporary covering of the retail space should provide retail space, warehousing space and room for the staff. When temporarily covering a retail space it is important to create a pleasant interior climate so the customer can shop in comfort and the staff can work in a comfortable manner.
Veldeman has temporarily covered retail spaces for Delhaize in different locations, which are fully operational within a period of two weeks (from start of installation to opening). In addition to retail and warehouse space, the necessary social spaces are provided, such as a canteen, offices, toilets, changing rooms and staff kitchen. Thanks to insulated tent structures, equipped with air conditioning, an optimal shopping and working environment can be created. But there is more than only covering the retail space. Veldeman provided them with solid interior floor systems, lighting, refrigerating and freezing rooms, electric sliding doors with anti-slip ramp, electric shutters, loading and unloading platforms, etc. In addition, Veldeman provided the connections for cash registers, Internet and alarm. The safety of the staff and customers is also taken into account when the temporary retail spaces are covered: in accordance with regulations, adequate emergency doors with panic locks, emergency lighting and fire extinguishers are provided.
