Routine despite time pressure
When Usain Bold, Yohan Blake and Co. went on the hunt for records in Zurich's Letzigrund Stadium on 30 August 2012, the specialists at Kummler+Matter (KuMa) were finally able to sit back and rest. Because for the previous two weeks the team headed by Project Manager Christof Schilter made an all-out effort to install the temporary power supply for the hospitality zone and various TV broadcasting vans on time. The six-man team worked round the clock to keep to the deadline. Routine and experience paid off, and the work was completed on schedule. But for the KuMa team the respite was brief: They had to dismantle the installations as soon as the meeting was over. It was already time to set up the next event.
