Cube During Covid-19
Thinking outside the box during a global pandemic
Since the beginning of 2020, with the global sports industry and much of the world at a standstill at various times due to the pandemic, the innovations team at Cube has been working hard to provide support and solutions for businesses and events in the wake of WHO and UK Government Covid-19 guidelines.
Cube launched its ‘Don’t Pass It On’ hand sanitiser stations in March 2020, the first of its kind in the world; a simple concept to encourage hand sanitation for spectators, visitors and staff at public venues in order to help mitigate the spread of the virus. Tried and tested in the vigorous environment of sports events, the units made their first appearance at the Six Nations and at Cheltenham Racecourse. Following the ban on sports events they have since been deployed at venues and businesses across Europe, including the NHS frontline, airports, hospitals, supermarkets, football clubs, schools and nursing homes.
Utilising Cube’s modular foldable containers, the Cube team have developed several other important products to support the war on Covid, including the design of Care Home Visitor Pods, a covid-secure portable building which ensures safe visitations for relatives and residents. In addition, Cube’s innovative portable buildings were deployed at major venues across the UK as Covid-19 swab collection stations and hi-tech clinical testing laboratories.
Working with expert partners from across the events industry, Cube is also actively involved in The Safe Event Scheme, a standardised process for ensuring events are planned, delivered and managed safely and responsibly. The scheme is set to become a benchmark for the sports and events industries.
