This year the London Palladium hosted the prestigious FIFA Awards for the very first time in the UK. We were instructed by our client to supply and install Temporary Fencing, Pedestrian and Concord Barriers to segregate the public and protect the celebrities attending. We were absolutely delighted to be part of such a high-profile event.
To meet the televised schedule, we had to work within an extremely tight deadline with no room for error. There were various phases for the project and each phase required organisation and efficiency to ensure we did not affect other contractors on site. Failure to meet the deadlines would have had a serious impact on the ceremony and resulted in the event not meeting media and local authority’s requirements.
After detailed discussions our team used the events requirements along with experience gained from previous public events to determine the ideal product type and quantities to satisfy the event’s needs.
Once we had fully examined the brief we decided the best approach was to supply and install 210 metres of temporary mesh fencing with 2 vehicle gates. The fencing was supported using stabilisers to every 3rd panel. To accompany this, we then supplied and installed 74 linear metres of Police barriers, 102 linear metres of Concord barriers and finally, we supplied 115 linear metres of fixed leg pedestrian barriers.
Installation begun on the evening of Sunday 22nd October with the initial delivery and install of temporary mesh fencing pedestrian Barriers. The install was completed on Monday 23rd with the addition of Concord and Police Barriers. The whole event was concluded on Tuesday 24th, our team dismantled and removed all barriers along with the fencing by 10am that morning.
We felt that the installation was well organised and executed efficiently resulting in a fantastic testimonial from our client.
“I just wanted to say a big thank you from me for The Fifa Best Project. Mark you were outstanding on site responding to our every request with a smile no matter how many times we changed things.
Greig, I truly appreciated your efforts with the supply and in particular the Concord barrier and I had many comments on how smart they looked.”
“Overall the project was extremely testing for myself and Angela and as always we put a lot of trust in our suppliers to help us deliver the clients vision. Safe Site were more than just a barrier company for us and definitely were instrumental in the smooth running of the project on site.”
