WHO: Heron International and Sir Robert McAlpine
WHAT: Topping Out Ceremony
BRIEF: Allowing for a wet weather contingency plan, we were instructed to arrange the installation of technical equipment and set backdrops on the roof of the Riverwalk building, which was to host a Topping Out ceremony. This unique and challenging venue on the banks of the River Thames was a fully operational building site, which meant we had a number of production restrictions and safety considerations to overcome. In addition to technical production, guests were to be served with refreshments throughout the ceremony.
RESULT: We began with the installation of two branded set backdrops and full AV equipment on both the 12th floor and on the roof of the 17th floor. Live filming link up and video relay were then installed so that whilst the ceremony took place on the roof, the event was played on screens on the 12th floor of the site. Due to blustery weather conditions on the day, the Piper and all guests apart from the VIP party remained on the 12th floor whilst the ceremony took place, as a precautionary health and safety measure.
