Home Case Studies Spok Waiting Shelter for South Shields General Hospital

The Spok waiting shelter has been modified by Falco’s design team to meet the hospital’s requirements by removing a side panel to provide maximum access for all users. The images attached shows the robust Spok waiting shelter well at home within its surroundings.
