At Chiswick Park Enjoy-Work, they understand that life sometimes gets in the way of fun. So, they have brought fun to their employees. They have done this by bringing the beach to their business park in west London.
Life in the city means that any chance of getting to the beach is a hot, long, weekend consuming, car journey to the coast. Well, this is no longer the case for the workers at Chiswick Park. The site has not only created a beach on site but has also organised many fun-loving summer events such as sand-sculpting, helter skelter, Punch & Judy, a DJ, Pirates on stilts, beach body workouts, face painters, donkeys, a volley ball league, Barbeques and much more.
For all of this to happen, Chiswick Park needed someone to help bring the beach to them, and Jones FM was happy to help. This involved Jones FM designing a framework for the beach area, and then laying a membrane foundation down within it. We then sourced 100 tonnes of play sand and organised the transportation of it to the site. It was then laid and levelled off to be ready for the workers and community of Chiswick park to enjoy. We also organised 30 tonnes of building sand to be delivered to the site, for the sand sculpting event by professional sculptor and painter Ray Wirick.
This is not a task you would ordinarily expect an M&E contractor on a site to assist with, however, Jones FM will always be the company that goes above and beyond for its clients. If we are capable, we will always assist in any way we can – even if that means creating and transporting a beach to a work site in central London. I guess it was just a shame that we couldn’t also guarantee the sunshine for Chiswick too, but that is British Summers for you.
