With the countdown clock reading only 26 days until the opening ceremony we are at the start of the home straight.
The signage is packaged up at our facility in Glasgow
45 of the 90 freestanding signs have had their concrete bases cast and steelwork fabricated and installation of the first sixteen monoliths will take place in the athletes village next week.
Getting ready to ship the goods for safe arrival in Baku
Leaving a legacy has been important to our client, so it’s great to have the opportunity to train up the eight locals we've taken on to assist with the signage installation process. With Formula One’s European Grand Prix being held in Baku next year, followed in 2017 by the Islamic Solidarity Games, hopefully the local labour will be able to use their new skills at these events.
It’s been another satisfying trip to Baku, but our success will only be measured on how we perform in this closing straight. My fifth and final visit to Baku in a few weeks’ time will I'm sure see us sprinting successfully over the finishing line!
