“May I commend you on having a very professional and accommodating team. The guys who delivered and collected the accommodation units were absolutely brilliant.”

Charlie Boxhall, Site Manager for Marshall Arts Ltd

As part of a nine-date UK tour in 2017 entitled the ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’ Tour, Elton and his band performed at the Excelsior Stadium, the home of Airdrieonians FC. This was the only Scottish venue of Elton John’s 2017 UK tour. Marshall Arts promoted the event and needed temporary accommodation which was to be sited in the car park of the Football Club.

The Challenge

The accommodation units were needed for a week leading up to during the show. Nevertheless, this was still a challenge as the car park was on a slope, so it was essential to get the units level.

The Solution

A total of 12 new A-Plant Accommodation units were supplied by our service centre in Bellshill for this high profile event. To get round the issue of the sloping car park, jacklegs were fitted in most of the cabins. The units supplied ranged from 32’ to 21’ and were of eco specification providing energy efficient site accommodation with high specification features such as, double glazing, extra insulation and significantly reduced carbon dioxide emissions. All the units were exceptionally high quality and attractive in appearance, following A-Plant Accommodation’s recent investment in replenishing and renewing the hire fleet.

The Results

Marshall Arts were extremely impressed with the quality of the accommodation units and the first class service received from Bellshill Accommodation. We are proud that Sir Elton John himself, along with his crew, used the units during this landmark concert.

“This was a nice job from start to finish, especially when Elton John and the crew were using our units for changing rooms and hospitality for the show. Our client was very happy with the outcome.”

Freddy Macnamara, A-Plant Accommodation
