Public Acccess Staircase

Location: Crystal Palace

Responding to a last-minute change of plan, event organisers needed to find a company that could erect a massive Public Access Staircase in double quick time.

The staircase – a mightily impressive 31 metres wide and scaling a 4.5 metre high bank – was needed to provide the main access point for 150,000 concert goers expected at the event (London's largest festival).

In just 48 hours UKSSH and Tamworth Scaffolding designed the massive temporary Public Access Staircase, shipped lorry loads of components from their Tamworth base to Crystal Palace and erected it.
