Opening of COVID screening centres

Client: Biogroup


At the height of the health crisis, Biogroup Laboratories called on French Touch Commercial to support them in their proactive policy of opening COVID test centres.

“Finding premises quickly was one of our biggest challenges! Admittedly, premises are easy to find because they are all empty – but for all that, the landlords are not inclined to lower the rent.


  • Need to open screening centres in a very short time, leaving no time for traditional negotiation
  • Difficulty convincing landlords of the usefulness of opening a screening centre on their premises
  • Need to optimize the territorial network at both local and national level

Our biggest challenge was to open centres very quickly – the London market is not suited to this kind of demand.”

Our intervention

FTC supported Biogroup laboratories in their deployment. Intensive on and off market research enabled us to put forward to them numerous solutions for their centres. A direct approach to landlords also allowed us to find a very good place in Hampstead.
