RHS Chatsworth Flower Show 2018 - Major new contract for EFS Europe

RHS Chatsworth Flower Show 2018 - Major new contract for EFS Europe

Posted: Thu, 21 Jun 2018 10:13

Event Flooring Solutions were commissioned by the Royal Horticultural Society to provide temporary event flooring for this year's event at the prestigious Chatsworth House. At the heart of the site sat the interpretation of Joseph Paxton's Great Conservatory, flanked either side by the Cavendish and the Devonshire Floral Marquees, which were home to nurseries, specialist societies and floral design. EFS provided the flooring for each of these marquees with their Temp-A-Path flooring system.

The flooring was installed this year for the first time, to improve accessibility within the two marquees. The installation took place over 2 days with 7 men working 8 ½ eight hours per day, with the uplift taking the crew the same amount of time. All together, 5700sqm of light grey Temp-A-Path was installed; 3300sqm in the larger Devonshire marquee and 2400sqm in the Cavendish. The Temp-A-Path was laid on top of a Geo-membrane to improve protection to the ground below.

Adam Walker, Operations Assistant for the Chatsworth Flower Show said: 'Just thought I'd pass on this snippet from our feedback summary from the first day: Brilliant flooring of large marquees with all stalls – very easy to walk on and if it does rain it will be great.'

Jeremy Simpson, EFS's Business Development Manager said: 'We were delighted to work with the Royal Horticultural Society for the first time and the contract was a major coup for us. We knew that Temp-A-Path would tick all the boxes, it does what it says on the tin!'

The RHS Chatsworth Flower Show offered a thrilling day out that blended tradition with exciting and innovative design. The 5 day show took place from 6 to 10 June with thousands of people flocking to the show.

Holland Park Opera - EFS has it covered

Holland Park Opera - EFS has it covered

Posted: Thu, 10 May 2018 10:54

EFS Europe kicked off its summer season at Holland Park in May for the prestigious, annual Holland Park Opera. Investec Opera Holland Park London is widely regarded as one of the most exciting, innovative and accomplished opera companies in the UK, with an extraordinary history of producing rarities, alongside popular favourites. Whether novice or aficionado, OHP has something to offer – and all taking place in one of the most beautiful covered spaces in the capital.

The summer season of opera is hosted in a temporary venue built alongside the ancient ruins of Holland House. To cater for the 1000 plus guests, EFS Europe supplied and installed 600m2 of Club Stub Back within the outdoor terraced area. The event carpet allowed the surface water from the May showers to drain beneath the carpet preventing a soggy top!

1,140m2 of EFS Europe's Poduim Flat Velour was also installed to all of the indoor seating areas within the auditorium as well as several other indoor areas, both front of house and backstage.

EFS Europe does it again at Bury St Edmunds Christmas Fayre & Lincoln Christmas Market

Posted: Fri, 05 Jan 2018 11:32

In the historic town of Bury St Edmunds, the Christmas Fayre is a focal part of the local festivities, and EFS Europe has been supplying temporary flooring for the event for the last four years.

Having expanded by over 30%, the organisers needed 2,500m2 of EFS Temp-a-Path plastic flooring to protect the city's Cathedral grounds and provide safe pedestrian access for the thousands of visitors.

100 miles north, EFS Europe also returned to the ancient city of Lincoln for its famous market held in the city's historic Castle & Castle Gardens. Attracting over 250,000 visitors, the organisers specified over 2,900m2 of EFS Temp-A-Pathto be installed within the grounds. Having started with just 11 stalls, the market now showcases more than 200 traders and a variety of cultural entertainment.

These winter events choose EFS Temp-A-Path™ due to its lightweight nature, and the fact that all the sites contain historic listed buildings. The ability to install the Temp-A-Path™ by hand allows the organisers to keep heavy plant machinery to a minimum, reducing the risk of damage to property, roads or footpaths. In both locations, Temp-A-Path™ is also used to protect grassed areas, reducing the cost of post-event clean up and maintenance.

Speaking about the projects, EFS Europe Business Development Manager Jeremy Simpson said:

"These events have become a regular feature on our own event calendar. The locations present their own unique challenges, but by using our EFS Temp-A-Path™ product the organisers have been able to grow in size without having to worry about how to protect the site surfaces."
