Wales To Welcome 33 Cube Modular Visitor Pods At Care Homes Across The Country
Over the next few weeks Cube Modular will be spending a lot of time in Wales, delivering visitor pods to care homes in almost every corner of this beautiful country. The team is currently brushing up on its Welsh name pronunciation skills, finding those without vowels particularly tricky!
The 33 pods are being rented for six months under a Welsh government scheme which enables care homes to offer COVID-secure visits in a comfortable setting outside their main buildings. The temporary buildings have all been built to meet government grant criteria, including two separate entrances, wipeable flooring and a floor-to-ceiling screen partition inside.
The deliveries comprise three different Cube visitor pod models, all of which include ceiling lights, electric heaters, power sockets and a speaker and microphone system with hearing loop.
FP10D Pod: Where space isn’t an issue, our 6m long FP10D offers the most generous proportions.
SVP Purpose Built: Our bespoke SVP pod can be configured with alternative door positioning to suit differing layouts of care home sites.
GRP35 Pod: The most recent GRP model is also the smallest, with 2.2m width instead of 2.4m. If access is an issue it can be assembled on site.
Cube’s Welsh pods have all been treated with an anti-microbial coating covering internal surfaces to give additional COVID-19 protection for a minimum of three months.
Some care homes have already got plans in place to purchase or extend rental of their pods at the end of the six month period, and will eventually re-purpose them for professional appointments such as podiatry, or as therapy rooms, garden sitting rooms etc.
In England care homes may also be able to claim funding, at their local authority’s discretion, under the recently announced extension of the Adult Social Care Infection Control funding, depending on the criteria which has yet to be announced for Round 3.
