We will contact you, to request for further portfolio and registration details. Please note that the concept sketch and cross-sectional design is constructed through our construction services, in-house, however for country-to-country chomp of accuracy, a local national is required.
*** Rigging Specialists:
We require companies and specialists who are experienced in arts rigging, rather than products of technical and mechanical production. Product equipment supplier requests in Sound, Light, Video/Digital items, we outsource ‘bid’ separately, as the ‘handover’ of a products life expectancy is faster, and our expertise looks usually at a differing need.
We do not promote a particular brand and/or make and model and are not sponsored, therefore we are investing in the limited company or individual of expertise.
**** Other Specialist Areas:
Please contact us directly, as this may vary from barriers/signage/ washrooms through to musical stands/oversized instruments/bars/ costume and props and art gallery materials.

Other ** depending upon the client ask.
The database form requests your current hour rate / promotional package and if you are accustomed to education and public sector builds, the % margin for discussion. This is for the directory only, and this is private and confidential, and nothing is sent onto a 3rd party.
Please be aware, we do request, upon a client request of proposal of your service, an updated ‘per project bid’, as every build is different, which consists of a quotation breakdown, direct to your service agreement charges. This is traditionally in negotiation, and usually the client through us has a fixed budget.
Payment is by transfer, and with the current climate of return to work, conducted in % stages to ensure no one is out of pocket.
We do not offer a commission, or sponsor rate, and present to you the raw budget expectation. Per project, we explain to all database contractors the scope required and the cost, there is no mark up.
If unsure on setting your ‘price’, please use the industry union and federation advice as a guideline, these are online, and move in-line with your country of residence working standards. Please note, we do check, and if a price is clearly fabricated above the national standards, additional requests of service/reasoning maybe sought. Or your expression of interest may-be dropped from the project.
We offer our clients ‘quality’ for value of money, and this is measured in service, rather than ‘cheap’ or ‘cut price’. Naturally clients, like to see a ‘unique’ discount/ however we much prefer the sub-contractors provide an honest/holistic breakdown.
