Axe Throwing @ Whistle Punks!

As we prepare to start installation of our single biggest project to date it was important that our site team created a good working relationship with the client. To encourage this, we organised a team building event and challenged the Mace team to try their hand at Axe Throwing.

The venue, Whistle Punks, was perfectly situated less than a mile from Battersea Power Station, in Vauxhall. The 24 strong group, a mixture of both Loughton Contracts and Mace, were welcomed by three instructors charged with teaching us the art of axe throwing!

Once we had been shown the basics of one handed and two-handed throws, we divided into 2 teams and the competition began. There were over 600 axes thrown at the wooden targets, some of which stuck! We looked far from the cast of ‘Last of the Mohican’s’, it turns out axe throwing is much harder than it looks!

The evening was a great opportunity for our team to discuss elements of the project in less formal surroundings and everyone left unscathed, to the relief of our H&S Director!!

We are now all looking forward to our next challenge together – the installation of 26,000 m2 of Domus chevron timber flooring!
