MSL have worked with this client for a number of years carrying out emergency reactive maintenance and a comprehensive compliance maintenance programme throughout the UK and Ireland.
Our Service Desk took an emergency call from the client’s Facilities Manager as the store in Bristol had been ram raided. The site needed to get back up and trading as quick as possible. The emergency services had attended to take the forensics required, where we were then given the green light to proceed with installing a temporary hoarding and door.
CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS
- Make Safe the existing shop front door way and glazing
- Clean up all broken glass and metal framework
- Attend the local builders merchants to collect specific materials to enable the client to trade
- Install temp shop front with access door for customers to use
- Paint Black so it blended into the area better as oppose to just leaving bare plywood facing
- The client arranged with the landlord a new shop front to be installed
Although we had fitted a temp timber shop front and painted it black, the client deployed a security guard to be present 24hrs until the new shop front could be reinstated. The client insisted the temp hoarding/shop front and temp access door must be painted black. By doing this it was hopeful it would not impede on trade. The client was highly impressed with our swift response getting them up and trading within 10hrs.
