A company which supplied hundreds of temporary structures to last year’s Olympic and Paralympic Games has been given the stamp of approval after being awarded a licence from the London 2012 Supplier Recognition Scheme.
GL events Owen Brown has been granted the licence to promote its involvement following a deal between the Government, the British Olympic Association and the International Olympic Committee.
The company was a member of the GL events Consortium, which designed, manufactured and installed around 166,000sqm of temporary buildings across 78 venues at both Games, all performing a wide range of functions including merchandise stalls, ticket offices, athletes’ quiet rooms and security posts.
Scott Hayward, managing director of GL events’ UK divisions, said: “We are extremely proud to have been involved with the Olympics and are very happy to have now been given permission to talk it when we bid for new work.
“By telling people what we achieved in London last year, we will leave nobody in any doubt as to the quality of our products and the high standard of service that we are capable of.”
As part of a separate deal secured between GL events and Locog, Owen Brown can also use the London 2012 logos on Olympic case studies.
