The European Archery Championships takes place 23rd-29th May at the Old Market Square in Nottingham England, the home of archery. The Championship is the second to be held in Great Britain which was the last taking place in the historic town of Stoneleigh, Coventry in 1978. Part of the championship will also be the European Continental qualifying Tournament for Rio 2016.
Our client briefed us with requirements to build a number of tiered seating platforms in the historical ‘Old Market Square’ in Nottingham. Old Market Square is a historical landmark which involved taking great care when building in the venue at all times with paramount positioning. The brief was to fit as many seats as possible (min 1000) in a limited space over obstacles as well as keeping away from the tram lines and cables overhead.
The venue was surveyed and using our in-house design department we created 2D and 3D designs which calculated a number of seating stands that would maximise the amount of space we had. This gave our client over 1200 seats, more than expected. The designs were complete to the client’s seal of approval and were handed over to our experienced production team who produced two on brief stands with bespoke roof covers. Finally finished with stretched black netting and the client’s #roadtorio branding, the stands were complete for what ended a very successful event.
