Working to schedule

Planning and coordination
Actavo coordinated 3 teams in 3 locations to ensure everything ran smoothly.
Solutions to challenges
Health & Safety
Actavo delivered and installed while ‘Winter Wonderland’ was setting up in Hyde Park. The team coordinated closely with ‘Winter Wonderland’ and put extra safety measures in place. The team unloaded the trucks on Friday when the area was quieter and therefore safer.
The team split into three: barrier team, gantry team and sponsor branding. To allow simultaneous installation in Crawley, barriers were delivered on three different transit vans.
Working to schedule
The team prepared detailed schedules to demonstrate how tight timelines would be achieved. Each site was assigned a Project Manager who was the point of contact for the client.
Benefits to client
The team worked closely with the client, amending services quickly according to their changing needs.
The team is experienced in supplying largescale events.
“The set-up logistics were challenging because Winter Wonderland trucks were entering the park as Actavo was building, but the teams worked together safely. The Actavo team was available for progress meetings and site visits and provided detailed schedules in advance of the event, giving us peace of mind that they understood the requirements. They had three strong supervisors looking after each site and the fact they managed to install the gallows branding at Crawley for the first time in a few years was notable. We had a good post event debrief after our first job together in 2017 and the Actavo team understood the areas for improvement and implemented this for the next event. The team was flexible with changes and worked with us to achieve our budgets.”
