The brief

Provide a single point of contact for the planning, design, construction, maintenance and removal of temporary infrastructure across all venues. As a turnkey solutions provider we undertook the design, supply and installation of all commodities including tents, cabins, seating, scaffolding, temporary fit out, power overlay, rigging, broadcast lighting and FF&E.

The Challenge

All 7 venues were to be delivered concurrently within one week. This required an extremely well resourced supply chain and construction management team.

The result

All venues were delivered on time and on budget with a spotless health, safety & environmental record.
