It’s safe to say that the Grand Final Parade was our largest event of the Grand Final season. We carried out the installation of 6 km’s of Crowd Control Barriers (crowdies) for the parade, employing four crews who worked a staggered bump in, in accordance to the customer’s requirements.
As soon as the parade concluded, our team began the bump out process. Working under tight timelines, we had to remove the barriers blocking roads so that they could reopen safely to traffic. Additionally, we had a run of crowdies over William Barrack Bridge, requiring a specialised forklift, as trucks couldn’t access the bridge. All of this was completed whilst large crowds were still wondering around.
Our operations team provided great support throughout the event. All Project Managers were involved at some stage across all events. Ben Cassar, or as otherwise known, “CCB Ben”, did an absolutely amazing job orchestrating the delivery of the Grand Final Parade.
