Operation London Bridge (HM Queen Elizabeth II Funeral)

Operation London Bridge (HM Queen Elizabeth II Funeral)

It is barely 3 months since the excellent support you and your team gave us on the Platinum Jubilee. We have long known we could rely on you but what of course we did not know was just how soon we would need to call on you again with the activation of London Bridge. 

For all the meticulous planning and preparation, the ‘no notice’ activation presented a huge challenge to us all. Your response, just as it was with the Jubilee, was exceptional. Your whole team demonstrated outstanding professionalism and a commitment to getting the job done in the face of a really exacting timetable, challenges with road closures and access as well as the pressures of having so many members of the public on the footprint. While the various processions were rightly the focus, it was your work – once again – that ensured the ceremonial routes in London and Windsor looked superb. There is no sight in the world quite like The Mall dressed by flags. You did the country proud. 

Thank you very much – from Debbie, myself and the whole Arcadis team – to all of your team for their phenomenal hard work throughout the preparation for and the delivery of your services throughout London Bridge. You have once again proved to be a fantastic partner in the delivery of our Ceremonial Event Management Service. 

We are very grateful and look forward to our continued working relationship.
