As the weather begins to heat up a little and we head into the summer months, it’s time to get ready for those outdoor events. After the pandemic restrictions of the last two years, these events are likely to prove very popular, so you want to make sure that you get it right. Whether you are planning a sports event, a music festival, or even a food festival, it is important to consider the facilities that you will need to help make your event a success. This is not always as easy as you might hope, however, with a reputable hire company like SRP Hire Solutions, things should be a little easier than you might think.
Here are the five facilities that you really need to consider for your outdoor event this summer.
Without the right toilet facilities, you may find that your event will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. This is one facility that you cannot ignore, and getting it right is vital to the success of your event. You need to think about the type of toilet units that you might need for your event and also how many you will need based on the number of people who will be attending. There are no exact figures on the number of toilets that you need to provide as a ratio to the number of attendees that you will have. However, as a rule of thumb, you should consider providing more female toilets than male ones, as male toilet cabins will also include urinals.
Don’t forget you will also need toilet facilities for your staff as well.
If your event will be taking place over a number of days, then toilets alone will not be enough. You will also want to consider providing hygiene facilities as well. Whilst not everyone will want to use these facilities, they can be a very important addition to your planning. Whilst Covid restrictions have all been lifted it will not hurt to include some sink wash stations in your facilities, hiring these will allow for extra handwashing around the site of your event.
Accessible toilet and wash facilities
The final types of hygiene provisions that you will want to consider hiring for your event are toilets and hygiene facilities that are suitable for use by people who need accessible facilities.
Management site cabins
The running and managing of your event can take a lot of work and it is best if this is done “on-site.” This means having your event management team accessible and having somewhere where they can coordinate everything from. A site cabin will offer you somewhere to complete admin, keep first aid supplies, and even have a space for lost property and issues with people who have lost the rest of their party.
It also provides a dedicated space for your employees to spend some downtime and take a break between shifts. A central point like this can be invaluable especially when you are running a larger event.
If your event is taking place away from a built-up area, then you will be lacking the main power source. You should plan for this, and also any potential power outages by hiring a generator which will give you a steady and reliable source of electricity. The right generator will provide you with a wide range of different benefits. You will find that there are several different types of power outputs that you can hire. If you are not sure exactly what type you need, it can be a good idea to discuss your requirements with the hired company.
