O2 Arena Conic Bar Canopies

Project Outline

Designers MC Squared asked us to design, manufacture and install two canopies located at the 02 Arena for their client Brandwidth. One tensile canopy consisted of an inverted cone fitted to the underside of the existing services towers. The other was a freestanding conical canopy supported on a central mast and perimeter tripods.

Our Solution

Our scope of works included the membranes, supporting steel and fittings including the cables to support climbing ivy.

 

Results

The transformation of the service tower was visually dramatic and enhanced the very popular venue. The client went on to propose additional structures on the site and at other venues.
