EFS at Calling Festival, Clapham Common

The hugely popular Calling Festival was this year relocated to a new home on London’s Clapham Common. Organised by Live Nation, the 2014 festival saw Aerosmith and Stevie Wonder headline over two consecutive nights. As part of our first work for Live Nation that involves all of the organiser’s summer festivals, EFS was contracted to supply and install 1,300m² of our Temp-a-Path system around all of the toilet areas at the Calling Festival. In addition, Live Nation also requested that we install Temp-a-Path around the VIP areas and artist dressing rooms on order to provide clean and safe access to these key locations. Four areas of public toilets were located on the site, with the EFS stock being delivered by van to these locations from a central delivery area. Our onsite team then manually installed the flooring system. In order to ensure stability in the event of adverse weather, EFS took the further step of laying a geo-textile membrane beneath all of the Temp-a-Path system. This system also helps to speed up the recovery time of the ground once the flooring system is removed. Speaking about the project, EFS Business Development Manager Jeremy Simpson said: “More and more event organisers are identifying the long term benefits of installing our systems around sensitive areas of their sites. By installing temporary flooring in toilet areas they are improving the experience for their customers and minimising disruption in the event of heavy rain. They are also reducing the impact on the ground as a result of these relatively small areas having extremely high levels of footfall.”

Temp-a-Path is a lightweight modular system that gives event organisers a high degree of flexibility when it comes to planning a site layout. The final installation requires no plant machinery or fixings, making it perfect for sensitive areas, and it can also be laid on to contoured surfaces.
