Royal Building Opening for MoD’s UK Hydrographic Office

"We proudly managed the opening of the multi-million, state-of-the-art UKHO facilities by HRH The Princess Royal"

Over 950 staff and dignitaries attended, with representatives from 18 countries spanning five continents.

Months of planning go into a Royal visit but the meticulous attention to detail paid off on the day when The Princess Royal commended the UKHO for the vital role it plays in supporting maritime navigation, safety, security, and marine development around the UK and worldwide.

The Rt Hon Earl Howe, Minister of State for Defence, spoke of the UKHO’s long and successful history of supplying navigation services to shipping companies around the world, as well as its continued contribution to defence and the long-term prosperity of the UK and its allies around the world.

Operating under tight security, CT-Live set up clear roofed marquees to accommodate the high number of guests on site.  We also produced 1000 delightful British picnic boxes which were entirely compostable.  We installed all the audio visual and stage set requirements throughout the building and, in keeping with our sustainability ethics, sourced and supplied beautifully engraved stainless-steel thermal water bottles as a memento for all guests and staff.
