Cube x Eurofins COVID-19 Testing Facilities Pods Installed at ASDA Car Parks Across the UK
We have partnered with ECTS to bring convenient and reliable COVID-19 testing facilities to British holiday-makers, available at various ASDA car parks across the UK. ECTS is part of the Eurofins Group, the global leader in bio-analysis and laboratory testing.
Alongside a new hybrid fuel cell system which uses stored power to generate electricity for the pod, substantially reducing generator use, the project also makes use of Continest – our unique, foldable building solution. Utilising innovative building technology, the units can be folded down and stacked for transport, thus enabling a reduction of CO2 emissions by up to 80% compared to fixed portable building systems. Available in two sizes, transport allows ten CN20s (10x20ft) or twenty CN10s (20x10ft) to be transported on a single truck.
With at least 10 sites already installed, and a further 20 sites due to be installed in the coming weeks, the initiative has the potential to ease Brits into their return to travel with a hyper-convenient ‘test to depart’ service. Up to 50 sites have been agreed upon, with the potential for further expansion, helping to relieve stress as a return to travel ramps up.
Locations of the 10 existing testing pods include ASDA sites in: Ashford, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Falmouth, Hereford, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Swansea, Wheatley and Yeovil.
Part of the Cube International group, Cube Modular designs and manufactures modular portable buildings and containers of exceptional design, quality and functionality for sports events, venues, stadia and businesses.
