Comments Off on Arena Group unveils Glasgow 2014 plans

Official provider to Glasgow 2014, Arena Group has revealed the plans for transforming the Commonwealth Games venues with its temporary overlay, structures and seating products.


As an official Overlay and Temporary Structures Provider, Arena Group, including the Arena Structures division, has been working closely with the Organising Committee to design and install over 230 structures; totalling more than 20,800m2.


Meanwhile the company’s seating division, Arena Seating, has been liaising with each venue in Arena Group’s capacity as the Exclusive Temporary Seating Provider. The team has been tasked with delivering every single temporary seat at the Games – around 22,000 in total – across 10 venues. The seating team will also be installing camera platforms, wheelchair access platforms, press positions and commentator platforms.


Installation times vary for each venue, with the first project due for completion – the official merchandise shop in a Glasgow city centre location – commencing at the beginning of June.

Temporary build-up for World Squash Championships

Comments Off on Temporary build-up for World Squash Championships

The week-long PSA Men’s World Squash Championship, which takes place in Manchester in October, is developing temporary spectator capacity over two venues, the National Squash Centre, which will host preliminary rounds, and the Manchester Central convention complex, where the final stages will be held.

England Squash and Racketball in conjunction with Manchester City Council are the organisers. They have awarded Slick Seating the contract for temporary seating following a competitive tender. Slick will supply a number of temporary grandstands from its C View range, providing 500 and 1,100 seats to both venues respectively.

Scott Hayward, Managing Director of Slick Seating, said:

Squash is a fast-paced, incident-filled sport, so the spectators’ ability to see everything that takes place is crucial to their viewing experience.

Our C View temporary tiered seating system was developed in accordance with the stringent C value requirements of London 2012, which will ensure that everybody will have the best possible opportunity to enjoy uninterrupted views.
