Go Back to Projects

Project Overview

ES Global were contracted by Rio 2016 for the turnkey installation of the Triathlon transition deck, gantry, ramps, carpet and rigging for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The timescale for the installation of the 3,600m2 Transition Deck was very tight, with only 49 hours available for the installation and 13 hours for the removal. This meant that the logistical planning was complicated as the event occurred in central Copacabana, in the middle of the Avenue Atlantica.

ES Global’s Role – Project Management, installation, standby and removal of the transition deck, gantry, ramps, carpet and site facilities.
