CHALLENGING TIMES FOR THE LEISURE & HOSPITALITY SECTOR
It’s been a difficult period for the hospitality and leisure industry. Local and national lockdowns had placed immense pressure on the industry and forced them to close their doors, then reopen, then shut once again at the drop of a hat. But, during this time, those in the leisure and hospitality industries have proven themselves to be incredibly resilient.
Many pivoted their business strategies, offering everything from takeaway pints, coffee and roast dinners to online workout sessions, pamper-at-home packages.
Developers and Project Managers are keen to adapt their buildings to meet the evolving demands of the sector, whilst staying operational or at full occupancy for as long as possible. Architects must have to inform their designs, whilst facing the pressure of tight programmes to get through planning and tender for building works.
