Stadium Seating First in Telford

UK first has been announced at sports venue in Telford

The grandstand at Telford Athletics Stadium will enable a capacity increase of 80 per cent when used in standing mode.  

Project managed by biT's Architectural Assistant, James Maxwell, the ground-breaking stand will house 110 spectators  in seated mode and 198 when used for standing.  This provides the stadium operator with the flexibility to operate the stand as        an exclusively seated area, as all standing or as a mix of both.  The default position will be tipped back flush between the uprights and locked in place for maximum protection from vandalism whenever the stadium is not in use.

The stand is due to open in May 2020.
