When the Singapore Tourist Board wanted to exhibit on the south bank of the Thames, there was no obvious route into the site – located just beside The London Eye and surrounded by ornamental gardens. Certainly the project did not justify the complexity and expense of arrival by barge – as used by STG on the London Eye project in 1999 (see elsewhere).
After a detailed feasibility study, considering every possible option, route and method, STG came up with a cost effective solution. The next task was to convince the myriad of parties involved that the disruption would be minimal and, more particularly, nothing would be marked or damaged – disregarding the added complication of the hundreds of visiting tourists.
Needless to say, the hours of preparation paid off – everything went smoothly, without “a single blade of grass” being disturbed – par for the course with STG.
