Iraq & Afghanistan Case Study

When the HPower Group was asked to produce the Service of Dedication for the unveiling of the Iraq and Afghanistan Memorial in Victoria Embankment Gardens, London at 11am on the 9th March 2017, Qdos Event Hire was the sole supplier of temporary accommodation and welfare facilities.

Work commenced on the project for Qdos on 1st March when they delivered two 24ft x 9ft cabins, one with a 50/50 split, and an 18ft x 7ft 6” mobile office for use as event and site offices by HPower Group’s production team. In addition, a wide range of WCs from Qdos’ comprehensive offering was supplied for the event, including more than ten luxury vacuum toilet trailers, in various configurations to accommodate male, female and disabled guests. An experienced Qdos project manager oversaw the installation and remained onsite to ensure everything ran smoothly from their perspective.

Working within Horse Guards and Embankment Gardens presents its own challenges, given its historical and cultural significance. Obviously, security is very tight and stopping work, for the Changing of the Guard each day, had to be factored into Qdos’ schedules. Luckily the team has plenty of experience working at the venue from previous projects and this coupled with its great working relationship with HPower Group made for a successful project.
