HPower Group was appointed by The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to deliver structures and logistics for the Windsor section of Operation London Bridge – the operational name given to Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Funeral.
Given the nature of the event, intensive planning was required, particularly in securing commitment from the supply chain to mobilise and deliver at very short notice. HPower managed the contracts with the suppliers for all stewarding and infrastructure. The numbers on this job were immense; more than 2,500 day stewards were present and in excess of 700 night stewards. More than 800 temporary toilets were installed including 75 for disabled visitors. Twenty three catering units were supplied and 18 water bowsers capable of containing 10,000 litres of water were provided. More than 11km of pedestrian barriers were erected along the Long Walk and throughout the town, in addition to the 5km-plus of Heras fencing and 4km of High Density Barrier.
Venue: Windsor Castle and surrounds, Windsor, UK
Stakeholders: The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, The Royal Household, The Cabinet Office, The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, BBC TV, ITV
