COVID-19: Westfield shopping centres utilise tech to re-open

COVID-19: Westfield shopping centres utilise tech to re-open
Friday May 22 2020

The Westfield shopping centres in London will be relying on technology to help them re-open following the COVID-19 shutdown

Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City – Europe’s two largest shopping centres – are ready to open their doors as soon as the government allows.

Operators Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield say they are prepared to meet all health and safety measures outlined in the Safer Public Places document published by Government to ensure a safe environment.

This includes using technology such as live footfall cameras to manage the number of people entering the centres in a controlled way that will adhere to social distancing measures.

Scott Parsons, regional managing director UK and Italy for Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, said: “As well as heightened hygiene measures across every touch point, we have technology to monitor footfall and flows and ensure social distancing is practiced, as well as the benefit of onsite security and guest services teams to carefully control the measures at all times.
