Delivering Bespoke Crews with boys on Tour
June 2017 has been our busiest month in the history of Rock City delivering over 35,000 man hours over 350 projects.
Festivals were going well, the weather was a huge bonus making it possible to beat the Download Load-Out Time to 8 days, an awesome achievement by all the contractors and a huge difference to the mud of 2016.
For a brief period on Sunday 17th June a record 70% of the electricity for the UK’s homes and businesses was low-carbon as nuclear, solar and wind produced more than coal and even gas power stations. That afternoon was a glimpse into the future, of how energy provision will look in 13 years’ time because of binding carbon targets. Rock City’s drive is produce 25,000KW of green energy per year off our own solar panels on the Plymouth Training Centre’s roof to help balance our carbon emissions see November News for results.
Crews were now spread far and wide covering Radio 1 Weekend in Hull (cap 25,000) and Olly Murs at Market Rasen Racecourse (cap-25,000) in Lincolnshire. June saw the start of the Eden Projects, Cornwall (cap 2,500) with Bastille. Then the Stadium Shows at The Liberty Stadium Swansea (cap 20,000) and The Principality Stadium Cardiff (cap 75,000) with Take That, Robbie Williams and Justin Bieber respectively. Glastonbury build commenced for us looking after several clients a new one for this year was Flexotels.
At the beginning of the year we were approached by a Nerthlands Event Company looking at ideas on how to crew the install and de-rig of some new products created by Flexotels. Venues stretched from Glastonbury, Goodwood, Fairford, Ringwood, Focus 2 and Pylewell Park, the product was basically collapsible rooms equipped with showers, hot water, toilets and sinks and bed figurations to suite along with any additions you could imagine, Rock City managed to put together a team with cross skills to cover all shows giving continuity and self-sufficiency underlining the fact we can deliver bespoke crews satisfying the client’s needs.
