New facilities underline GL events’ environmental commitment


GL events UK has advanced its programme of investment in quality and sustainability with the launch of a newly refurbished component preparation workshop and paint shop facilities at its Castle Donnington headquarters.

The new facilities are key to maintaining the excellent condition of GL events’ equipment throughout the year and will, throughout the colder months, be a key focus of activity, as the infrastructure specialist’s in-house paint shop, roof cover and linings departments grade and refurbish the brand’s iconic equipment ready for peak-season deployment.

The new paint shop has been created with support from professional fire, explosive atmosphere, paint, and paint shop equipment experts, to uphold the company’s high standards of occupational health and safety, along with its reputation for delivering outstanding temporary structures at the many major events it supports every year.

Further investment has led to reduced noise-levels and increased energy efficiency throughout GL events’ stock management facilities; which benefit from upgraded lighting, heating and ventilation systems, as well as new roller shutter doors and forklift truck access curtains that further reduce heat-loss.

“At GL events we’re incredibly proud of our commitment to quality and efforts to operate as efficiently and sustainably as possible. This investment underlines how far we take our commitment,” commented Scott Jameson, GL events UK group managing director.

GL events is championing sustainability through its support of the Festival Vision 2025 initiative and, internally, by monitoring, measuring and improving processes to reduce environmental impacts.
