LabTech has announced a series of initiatives to aid the emergency services and vulnerable during the coronavirus epidemic. The measures, which are available immediately, include:
- Complimentary STAY apartments for NHS workers and their families, the elderly and people at high risk of eviction. LabTech has apartments to donate across its Camden estate
- Provision of Camden House as a common room for the emergency services for use during breaks. LabTech is also providing free tea, coffee and breakfast to anyone using the space
- Camden Kitchen is being transformed into a soup kitchen three days a week. LabTech is working with The Camden Soup kitchen to provide them with a space to cook for the increasing numbers of homeless.
LabTech is already working with the emergency services and Camden Council to implement the initiatives.
Commenting on its support for Yaron Shahar, LabTech’s CEO, said: “London is facing a unique challenge and we all have a responsibility to do what we can to help. These initiatives from LabTech provide assistance where it is needed in the community, and we will continue to investigate other ways in which we can provide further support at this crucial time.”
LabTech has also launched a campaign to encourage Camden residents to use the contactless click and collect and delivery options being provided by the restaurants, bars, cafés and independent food stalls across its estate. The move coincides with the introduction of a temporary rent-free period for all its market tenants.
LabTech’s portfolio is valued at over £3 billion and includes London’s Camden Market and dozens of commercial buildings in the city. LabTech also operates shared-office venture Labs and co-living concept, STAY.
