The desert challenge

Before our mascot settled into our Tempsford trophy cabinet he took a trip with Project Director Rakesh.

Travelling a shade under 8,000 miles to our Al Mutrafiah Primary Infrastructure project in Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The only shade that was available was that under the project sign where the temperature was in excess of 40 degrees centigrade.

Following a team photo and before concluding a discussion on whether, in light of the ambient temperature, a “fur cut” was required for safety reasons he was rushed back to the territory office for a photo with our Saudi Arabian office staff.

 After meeting our Saudi Arabian office staff and, with his visa clearances confirmed, our bear was back on the flight back to Blightly. The return journey saw the bear introduce himself to the flight crew where he reviewed the cockpit from the jump seat.
