Painting & Decorating – Rugby World Cup

Painting to perfection

Corporate hospitality plays such a significant part in attracting revenue for every stadium. It is therefore imperative those paying for the premium experience, experience a premium environment.

The Challenge:

Twenty three days to renovate all the corporate boxes located in the Upper West Stand of Twickenham Stadium, including all corridors, ceilings and lift lobby areas – all before the first kick off of the Rugby World Cup 2015. 

Combine that with access restrictions and complex fire retardant wood surfaces to work with, Stadium Support Services were willing to take on a project no other company would attempt.

The Solution:

A huge team effort meant multiple teams of painters working around the clock to decorate the hospitality boxes, kitchens, corridors and lift lobby’s in time for the tournament.

The Outcome:

In total over 2,500 man hours were used to complete this commission. Stadium Support Services was keen to accept the challenge and proud to once again have met and exceeded all expectations with the job finishing on budget and ahead of schedule.
