Under the moniker of GL events UK, we designed and installed the eye-catching, 12,000-seat arena. This impressive facility featured Olympic-grade tiered seating and sight-lines. Additionally, accessible viewing platforms were provided for wheelchair spectators. Our modular deck seating system was fixed to a steel under-structure, enclosing corridors, staircases and toilets.
The basketball arena was the largest temporary venue ever constructed for an Olympic or Paralympic Games. It played hosted to basketball, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair handball and the final stages of high-octane handball competition.
The arena comprised of a hybrid solution that mixed demountable and static seating. This stunning solution provided the look and feel of a permanent arena. In addition to the grandstands, we also provided the field of play and a media centre. This was a truly turnkey solution.
