MTD USA was the sole temporary water partner for the Formula One in Miami last May.
More than 300,000 visitors attended the first Formula One Grand Prix in Miami held at the Miami International Autodrome, a track build around the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. This was the first race in a 10-year deal on the 19-turn and 5.412km circuit that was built for this event. The circuit layout is designed in a way that local residents would not be disrupted by the race. The track is a permanent style circuit with a temporary infrastructure, which will be removed when there are no races, the ideal situation to call MTD for help.
An international MTD team of 13 colleagues from five different continents worked continuously for six weeks to deliver the whole temporary water overlay. To contribute to a single-use plastic free race, MTD supplied 36 PHIL drinking stations with chillers. The entire water overlay is sampled and checked by a local water lab to secure safe drinking water on the venue.
The scope of MTD was immense and grew over the last weeks with the final scope of work coming to:
💧 9 VIP toilet clusters divided over two floors in the Paddock building
💧 7 kitchens stations divided over two floors in the Paddock building
💧 8 VIP team toilet clusters inside the PIT building
💧 14 team hospitality kitchens inside in the Hard Rock Stadium
💧 20 toilet clusters spread across the circuit
💧 48 Food & Beverage concessions, which included 140 sinks, spread across the circuit
💧 Main Medical Centre
💧 Broadcast & commentators compound kitchen
These kinds of first time projects can only be successful with the help of experienced event suppliers. MTD was happy to be involved in this first iconic Grand Prix in Miami, Florida.
