I am writing on behalf of Nelson City Council to thank you and your team at Glenn Roberts Electrical for the huge amount of work undertaken to prepare and deliver the three Rugby World Cup 2011 matches in Nelson. There is no doubt that the matches and accompanying events were very successful and that success is due to the contributions made by dedicated people such as yourselves going the extra mile to facilitate the tournament.
Your expertise with lighting, heating, generators and the provision of power outlets was invaluable. You and your staff have shown a real devotion to ensuring that the venue met the exacting standards required for the Rugby World Cup 2011 tournament especially in terms of emergency power generation and the ability for the sport lighting to re-strike within set timeframe. The leadership that you have shown in ensuring that these obligations were met was exemplary and greatly appreciated. Feedback from Nelson City Council and Rugby New Zealand 2011 Ltd staff highlighted the excellent working relationship that was established during the delivery of the tournament in Nelson which made dealing with all the complexities of Rugby World Cup 2011 a lot easier.
We have had nothing but praise from all quarters on the professionalism of your team, so please do pass on our thanks to all involved.
