Back in April this year we announced that CPS Manufacturing Co had secured a prestigious contract to assist in the £27m Victorian-era East Wing renovation at Alexandra Palace. We are now pleased to report that we have successfully installed our staging products at the old BBC TV theatre.
The staging products that we have designed, manufactured and installed are able to create four seating rostra configurations, three orchestra pit infill configurations and a stage infill inside the theatre. These staging systems and configurations will give the venue maximum flexibility for the different type of events it will hold.
The design of the rostra and associated components required close coordination with other trades along with a multi-disciplinary team and careful integration with the geometrical constraints of the old building. This is something that we're highly experienced at which proved to be a key factor in winning the contract.
In total, we supplied almost 200 stage decks, circa 1200 stage legs and over 200 fascia panels and valance curtains. This has resulted in being the single largest staging project that we have worked on in our 52-year history.
Managing director of CPS, Jason Hughes, commented: “The Alexandra Palace restoration is not your everyday kind of project with the unique design and installation challenges that we’ve faced.
“Everyone at CPS feels very grateful to have been given the opportunity to work on the restoration of this British iconic venue and I’m delighted with the efforts of my team who have shown great professionalism from concept to completion.
“Both the theatre and East Court will be re-opened to the general public in December and I’m sure everyone who visits the venue will be truly amazed by the stunning transformation.”
