Global events company
GL events has won the main overlay supply contract at The Commonwealth Games
This is the largest
contract in the history of GL events; they will be supplying everything from
several thousand spectators. This contract will see GL events supplying over
50,000sqm from its new Absolute range of structures, of which 40,000sqm has
been manufactured especially for the Games; the quality of the Absolute structures
was a key factor in GL events winning the contract.
Operations Director for the UK division: GL events Owen Brown has been seconded
to Delhi as part of GL events group management team for the Commonwealth Games
overlay contract. Hayward and his team in Delhi will face many challenges in
the project, including temperatures of up to 46c, basic working conditions and
a monsoon season.
