Hong Kong — Brand activation company, Pico Group, has designed and built a community treatment facility at AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE), as the city battles a new wave of coronavirus infections.

The facility, which commenced operations on 01 August, was completed in record time with Pico delivering some 500 cubicles at AWE Hall 1 in just three days.

As well as constructing patient cubicles, Pico also provided electrical fitting and appliances, and rental services for furniture and certain specified medical equipment.

Back in April, Pico was also involved in similar projects for infection prevention and control in Singapore, building 960 cubicles for Community Care Facilities at Singapore EXPO Convention and Exhibition Centre and MAX Atria; and providing close to 5,000 bunks and beds for recovering patients at Changi Exhibition Centre.

As the global business events industry pulls together to fight COVID-19, Pico Singapore executive director, Ng Meng Chuen, said the group will continue to contribute its expertise to do its part.

“The global crisis has brought about many firsts for businesses and people from across the industry. We worked day and night to deliver the project, but did it gladly in the fight against COVID-19," he said.

“The time and effort we spent are nothing compared to the dedication and commitment of the frontline workers and volunteers who are providing care to the CCF residents. We wish the residents a speedy recovery.”
