It was a great pleasure to work for Atom Events again on this very large private party. We spent 5 days putting together over 1,100 deck for this job and luckily the weather stayed on our side throughout. As you can see, it looked pretty spectacular once everything was done.

“That was all kinds of special. Thank you so much for pulling out all the stops, not rolling your eyes when I changed my mind / added something for the 17th time, the professionalism of what you create, having a total 'can do' attitude throughout the process and just being all round brilliant eggs (large organic and free range eggs that when you get them home they actually hatch. Those types of eggs).”

Tom Freud, Director at Atom Events

Working alongside IMG UK, we were back at Excel London in July to install an auditorium of over 200 seats for the AJ Bell London Triathlon. It’s the largest triathlon in the world and the only one in Central London, taking in some of the city’s iconic landmarks such as the London Eye, Westminster, London Bridge and The O2.

“Steeldeck were great to work with on the AJ Bell London Triathlon this summer. They were quick to send through all required paperwork and drawings, making our planning in the run up to the event a smooth process. During the event weekend, the Steeldeck crew were friendly and professional and we very much look forward to working together in future years.”

Alicia Mackay, Participant Experience Manager at IMG UK  

In June we were at the Lambeth Workshop to build a 13 tier stage, which was then clad in wood by William Floyd Maclean Studio and served as a place for visitors to sit and ponder. The occasion was the Royal College of Art’s School of Architecture Graduate Show, where over 700 postgraduate students presented their work, exhibiting design solutions to pressing global problems.

“Time and logistical constraints meant careful planning and clear communication was key in pulling this job off. From early discussions with Cat in the office through to working with the team on site it's always professional and an absolute pleasure to work with Steeldeck.”

This last minute seating job at the beautiful Kensington Town Hall involved 2 seating blocks with over 250 of our upholstered seats. We were working for Media Services, who are one of the leading event production companies in London.

"The Steeldeck team were amazing with all the last min changes, Big shout out to Richard and Eli for their hard work"

Taz Zebrowski, Project Manager at Media Services

This was our third outing to the annual Brighton Fringe Festival working for Otherplace Brighton, one of the city’s leading venue management and production companies. Labelled the ‘festival within a festival’, with 4 theatres, 2 bars, a market town and a kids area, ‘The Warren’ was the location for our build. Here we installed a tiered stage with around 280 tip-up seats for a month of comedy, theatre, cabaret, music and family shows. Now that sounds like a recipe for some fun!

"There is a level of complexity with this particular project and Steeldeck have the ability and flexibility to design the custom tiered seating and fitted stage that we need."

Joshua Carr, Technical Director at Otherplace Productions Ltd

Bat Out Of Hell The Musical is a new musical of teenage love, youthful rebellion and living the rock n’ roll dream. Steeldeck have been along for the ride every step of the way so far. It all started with a stage at the Territorial Army Centre in London for rehearsals and since then we’ve provided staging for the load-ins and load-outs at the Opera House in Manchester and The Coliseum in London where the show has now been transferred to and is ready for it’s world premiere on 5 June.

“Katie has done another brilliant job - all very good - she is a class act.”

Simon Marlowe, BOOH Ltd

London’s answer to Edinburgh’s fringe” says Time Out and with six weeks of top notch comedy, drama, music, food and film, we’ll surely attest to that. This is certainly not our first venture down into the depths below Waterloo station but we’re not shy of getting a little dirty as it’s always nice to see how the organizers transform this underground labyrinth into an eye-popping art extravaganza.

“At VAULT Festival, we have worked with Steeldeck for 4 years now and couldn't rate them higher. They are setting the standard in the staging industry to which everyone else is trying to catch up to.”

Andy George - Head of production at Heritage Arts Company

Anya Hindmarch presented their new 2017 collection at Lindley Hall for London Fashion Week in February and Inca Productions asked us back to build the staging for perhaps the most ambitious project we have ever worked on in this venue. The show gets bigger and bolder every time and has become one of the most anticipated of fashion week, winning awards and continuing to deliver.  We look forward to whatever may be in store when the next London Fashion week comes around.

"Duncan and the Steeldeck team work tirelessly to build literally the foundation for our shows each season. Always on hand to problem-solve, they really are an integral part of the process."

Rachel Hudson, Producer - Inca Productions

‘Oklahoma!’, written in 1943 after the United states had entered World War II, was forecasted as a guaranteed flop by New York scouts. However, it soon became an enormous box-office hit running to 2,248 performances and is now viewed as a seminal and ground-breaking work of musical theatre. In this instance it was the turn of Westminster School to have a crack at it and we were tasked with transforming their hall in Little Dean’s yard into a first class theatre, all whilst dodging students coming out of classes. We installed 250 seats on a tiered stage reaching as high as 12 ft at the back, and from what we hear, the show was a huge success.

"The seat block was put up and taken down with speed and great care. We were very pleased and would be happy to use you again.”

Paul Mcleish, Technician - Westminster School

The drama department is a very important part of any school and every parent loves the opportunity to watch their kid flourish onstage. Sometimes not all of the eager spectators get the best sightline and so our tiered seating can provide an attractive and comfortable solution ensuring everyone can see clearly. Room size or shape is no issue as we are the only company who can build at a totally bespoke row depth, tier height and row length all at the same time. You should see some of the spaces we manage to cram into!

"I received quite a number of very positive comments from parents regarding the tiered seating and the same from a number of guests too. I hope that we will be able to work together again on future productions.”

Henry Ernst, Facilities Manager Francis Holland School
