DRPG invest and double tech capacity
Work has completed on the new purpose-built warehouse extension at DRPG’s head office and studio complex in Worcestershire, with investment to double the technical capacity for its live events division.
Based on DRPG's 18,000sqm site in Worcestershire, the new facility is part of a £4m investment programme over the past 12 months.
The investment includes a new creative, comms, design and team welfare centre and a complete refurbishment of the studio complex. It also includes the installation of 750 solar panels which provides all the power for the entire complex.
The building works commenced in the Summer of 2020 and completed at the end of February.
Adam Pardoe, technical services director at DRPG, said, “With over a year of no live events or exhibitions, we’ve had time to take a new look at our scenic and technical support areas. We are in the final stage now of kitting out our newly extended home.”
DRPG CEO Dale Parmenter said: “Our research and insights team have identified there will be a pent-up demand for the return to live events and communication solutions, where there will be a period where demand will outstrip supply.
“We have always felt the importance not only to protect our live event resource but to increase it, hence taking the opportunity to invest in our live event and exhibition offering, as well as our studio complex."
