Rugby World Cup 2015
The Rugby World Cup is the third largest global sporting event and Eve was appointed as the official supplier to two customers, Arena Group and the Rugby Football Union during the 2015 tournament.
Arena Group and Rugby Football Union
Hybrid Panels, SupaTrac, GT Lightweight Barrier, Heavy Duty Barrier, GS7 Anti-Climb Fence
We worked alongside our customers Arena Group and Rugby Football Union, to deliver a high class installation in line with the designers’ and architects’ plans.
There were strict deadlines for completion of works and ongoing servicing of equipment whilst on hire. We visited all of the sites in advance and used a GPS system for the overlay of our products on to the clients’ CAD drawings.
The collaboration of working alongside multiple stakeholders to ensure an exacting solution to meet the needs of all on this project was very important. Our flexible approach to the ongoing demands of such a large scale and prestigious event contributed to the successful delivery of the project, and multiple products were supplied to ensure the most appropriate practical solution was delivered.
Equipment was used for public access and egress on all match days at the iconic Twickenham Stadium, including the World Cup Final itself.
