The East of England Arena and Events Centre (EEAEC) has announced that it has appointed construction business Mick George Ltd to provide maintenance services, facilities management and waste management for all associated works conducted at the venue, as part of a strategy to ensure readiness for the EEAEC’s bulging order book of festivals and outdoor live events.
In addition, all onsite equipment and systems – repairs, upgrades and testing – will be available around the clock, 24-7 to ensure the premises are continuously operational without disruption. Most notably, this will include plumbing, electrical, heating, security and emergency needs.
Jason Lunn, EEAEC general manager explained the move, saying “Mick George Ltd has been a venue sponsor and partner for some time, but this contract cements our long-standing relationship into a complete solution, ensuring that our facilities, and in particular our business-critical systems, are professionally maintained, managed and assessed as part of one overall contract. With the rise in the number of live outdoor events and festivals at the arena, including the 14-day long New Wine event next year, Mick George Ltd will liberate many of our staff to carry on delivering world-class events, secure in the knowledge that the whole site will be kept safe, clean and functional around the clock, even under the most demanding conditions.”
Angus Wilmot, Operations Manager at Mick George Ltd commented: “We originally became a sponsor in 2014 and over the last four years have developed a fantastic relationship that continues to blossom.”
He continued: “The East of England Arena and Events Centre is the most versatile indoor and outdoor facility in the region, which hosts a diverse range of entertainment, exhibitions and corporate occasions. We are proud of our affiliation with the Arena and its staff, and are pleased to upgrade our partnership.”
