Putting on major sporting events is an immense undertaking. From the FIFA World Cup to the Superbowl, massive events need facilities that can handle thousands of people and manage fast-paced logistics to run effectively. Fortunately, temporary modular buildings provide a variety of solutions for many of these events.
Here are just a few of the ways modular buildings support many of the largest events in the world below.
- Health and Safety Measures
During and after the peaks of the COVID-19 pandemic, many sports leagues and events used modular buildings to provide employee temperature checkpoints and wellness evaluations. In fact, WillScot has supported MLB and NFL teams with temporary space solutions that helped them adhere to social distancing guidelines. Modular buildings can also provide increased stadium storage space, further increasing the space for fans and employees to stay safe.
Temporary buildings have served as living spaces for athletes, including as buildings for the Olympic village. Many major events also use modular buildings to quickly construct hotels to accommodate officials, staff and spectators. These buildings can be constructed quickly and then reused after an event, making them a cost-effective and efficient solution.
- Media centers
With major sporting events comes significantly increased media coverage, and modular buildings often serve to support broadcast teams and communications with mobile offices. At NASA’s final shuttle mission for Atlantis in 2011, WillScot provided a modular complex that could accommodate media relations teams and global news networks alike.
Major events require substantial space to store large equipment and supplies that keep things running smoothly. Both mobile offices and portable storage units come in a variety of sizes to meet the specific demands of different sites, and can serve as a crucial resource for onsite storage.
- Offices and Event Operations
The 2019 PGA Championship utilized more than 80 mobile office trailers for ticket sales, tech support and other operational needs. WillScot’s modular offices for event operations can be easily set up and taken down within days, making them the perfect option for a major sporting event’s office space.
Modular buildings and storage units are trusted by some of the most prestigious organizations in the world to keep events running smoothly. Make your next event a success by requesting a quote online or speaking to one of our team’s experts.
