Go Construct’s portfolio of clients varies greatly in scale and glamour. We’re just as happy in private residential properties for small one-hour jobs as we are being onsite for months on end in major industrial refit.
Our work for the BBC Commonwealth Voices studios was simple and fun. During the Glasgow 2014 Games the BBC broadcast from the Forge Shopping Centre in the east of Glasgow. From what was previously a cinema’s pick n’ mix stall they furnished three small rooms with all of the specialist equipment needed to broadcast live throughout the day.
Our engagement on this project was to ensure electrical safety on the site. Broadcast equipment had been procured from multiple sources and the age of the kit varied from brand new to…”experienced”.
One of our electrical engineers arrived onsite to liaise with the studio engineers, ensuring that the careful installation wasn’t disturbed and that the safety of the producers, presenters and the delicate equipment was paramount. Go Construct’s engineer was onsite for four hours having completed a full safety assessment allowing the BBC to open the studio to full production as quickly as possible.
Go Construct fully outlined the expected time and cost required to ensure our temporary studio was properly powered and safe to use. The engineer was punctual, polite and able to answer all of our questions easily and in detail. I would highly recommend the company based on my experience.Norman MacLeod, Studio Engineer
