BoomTown – OneStopShop

August festivals included Reading, Creamfields, The Big Festival, Boomtown, SW4, Beautiful Days, Green Man, Dorset Steam Fair, Wilderness and MTV Crashes on Plymouth Hoe.  We were there in numbers for weeks at some of these or may have been in and out when time frames were pressing promoters to get ready for doors.  The logistics are complicated, the hours long, the crew rise to it every time.  Venues were quieter, the UK taking to fields and outdoor spaces for August.

BoomTown 2016

The success of BoomTown has been phenomenal, part festival, part theatre, set in a sprawling fictional metropolis with huge detailed sets as backdrops you really get the feeling of being in city waiting to come alive, it seems to grow year on year with huge success something we really wanted to be part of for some time and this year we got the chance.

We have been providing labour at BoomTown for other contractors for some years, but never in our own right, this year Entertee came to us looking for a contractor that could work independently to install & remove 30km of heras (braced) for them within a tight time frame.

We have for some time been working alongside one of the leading suppliers of barriers and fencing to provide a service delivering OneStopShop to supply, install, and remove equipment at a set rate, so this gave us the perfect scenario to test if our figures would hold up to something on a much bigger scale.

BoomTown in its size, topographical challenges and our commitment to offsetting our CO2 emissions in the build and removal set its own challenges, but with some great suppliers such as Winner Plant Hire, Boomtown’s established back room management team along with the BoomTown Crew we were able to meet the challenges head on.

The result was that we met our objectives in the build and surpassed them on the out by removing 5km a day banded, loaded and gone, we offset our CO2 emissions of 4,950.93kgCO2e by direct investment of £247.50, and updated our spreadsheets to be able to give any client a fixed price for supplying, installing and removing heras from 5km – 50km.

All in all we learnt a lot, we are confident in what we can deliver and have a bench mark.
