Updated: Sep 14, 2020
From Monday 14th September, new government guidelines have banned gatherings of over six people as a reaction to the recent increase in cases. We now know that you can get covid-19 more than once meaning that if we want customers to continue visiting restaurants, we must take visible measures to ensure their safety.
We have no idea how long coronavirus will continue to effect our lives for, so solutions for restaurants, pubs, hotels and hospitality should be implemented with longevity in mind. What if you could quickly add beautiful rooms to your commercial property that add to the dynamic experience of eating out whilst enabling customers to feel safe? Rooms that have none of the challenges of temporary solutions, and can be up and running within a week. Well, we have something for you...
Fokus; Beautiful Solutions for Pubs, Restaurants and Hospitality
Rules may have reverted backwards a little to keep us safe, but things are clearly different this time. People are determined to adapt a 'can-do' attitude. We need to stay social for our mental, physical and financial health. At the same time, we have a responsibility to keep the most vulnerable and the most nervous feeling safe. Fokus garden rooms can be created to host gatherings of up to six people meaning that you can turn this 'bump in the road' into a beautiful opportunity for your customers. In our new world, community and togetherness are at the centre of our priorities. People are looking to slow down and enjoy time spent with loved ones. After a quick installation, Fokus garden rooms can be decorated to become a part of your hospitality experience. Interior walls are ready to paint, meaning you can create any experiential atmosphere from an exclusive ambience, to a romantic escape, to a family gathering
Practical and perfect; outside space for longevity
As we head towards Autumn/ Winter, and weather conditions become less predictable, most temporary summer solutions to make use of outdoor spaces will start to become redundant. They will be too cold, too damp, too expensive to heat and too much of a fire risk for most solutions. Fokus gardens rooms provide a long-term solution that adds to the visual excitement of your dining experience, whilst benefitting from the following practical advantages:
Solar-powered electricity; to please your environmentally aware customers whilst you benefit from low heating and electricity costs
Insulated to retain warmth
A-grade fire resistant
Weather-proof using water-resistant, mould-free materials
Fast installation; within 48 hours once the foundations are in place
Ready to decorate and to become an important part of your offering
Outside space; garden rooms that do not need planning permission
Garden rooms can be created to your own specifications and requirements. Our team are here to help you with entry-level planning permission if needed. Our standard rooms, below 2.5 metres high, do not require planning permission. If you do successfully apply for planning permission for any of our Fokus garden rooms, they do add to the value of your property, unlike sheds or temporary garden room solutions.
