A Golden moment for EFS at the 2012 London Olympics

A Golden moment for EFS at the 2012 London Olympics

For Event Flooring Solutions (EFS) the highest point of 2012 was being asked to provide product for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Working for Nussli, EFS were asked to manufacture, install and up-lift portable flooring for use at Boxhill in Surrey as a part of the Men’s Cycling Road Race. EPS Temp-A-Path  was selected as the most practical and cost effective product and by removing the EFS logo from the tool they were able to quickly produce new product to the Olympic non branded specifications. As this was a new production run EFS were also able to change the colour to light grey in order to reduce the expansion of the tiles in direct sunlight. Working to very tight deadlines bespoke Temp-A-Path  was manufactured by EFS in the UK and installed by EFS staff at a number of locations around the Boxhill site. The product was used for disability access in and around tented areas and portable toilets, given the previous weeks’ constant rain it provided a safe and secure solution for this event. Jeremy Simpson, Business Development Business Development Manager commented “It was fantastic for EFS as a newly formed company to have supplied this prestigious contract with our own product in our first year of trading.” He added “sadly there were no GB Gold’s at this event – but as a company we certainly felt like real winners.”

Postpone or Cancel? Not an option for your Daughter’s Wedding!

Late December’s wet weather caused many high profile events to be cancelled but not for a special wedding in Leicestershire. Event Flooring Solutions (EFS) were tasked to ensure that a wonderful wedding and reception took place no matter whatever the weather. Working with GL Events EFS quickly visited the sited for a survey to assess the topography and overall logistics involved – the brief was simple “This wedding has to take place – failure is not an option!” The on site survey showed that access was critical, the field was located along a narrow country drive which meant un-loading from normal transport onto smaller vehicles and by hand. EFS organised lighter vehicles and forklifts to provide the ideal access to the site co-ordinated by EFS staff. Initially the key criteria was to provide access across the field for the support staff of GL Events to unload the marquee structure and support facilities. Additionally vehicular access was essential for the suppliers and sub contractors to construct and service the wedding marquee, finally given the wet weather access and parking for the guests was requested. For this essential work EFS staff installed 1100m² of their Hex Road product - light, flexible and able to allow for heavy loads, this was ideal for both site access and protection of the ground beneath, also allowing an ideal work platform for support staff and vehicle standing. Hex Road was also used around the site as access to on site parking, given the flexibility of Hex Road EFS were able to install additional spurs off the main road way to provide and maximise the number of parking spaces available. As the continued heavy rain fell and with several last minute urgent phone calls, it quickly became apparent that additional protection was required for the field in which the cars were parked. Given that this was the “Friday before Christmas” and new stock was required on site, EFS managed to arrange for several small vehicles to collect and deliver new product direct to the site. EFS staff were contacted and arrived on site in time to install 700m² of their Temp-A-Road product to in-fill and provide a firm parking area within the road spurs. As a final touch, EFS arranged for both the Hex Road and Temp-A-Road to be cleaned using mechanical sweepers and individual jet washing from mobile bowsers with on-site staff. This beautiful event took place with no hitches from the weather and thanks to EFS they were able to “Spare the bride’s blushes”!
