CAN was employed to carry out the installation of new LED lighting throughout the stadium, which comprised 112 units to the roof soffit and 148 units to the inner ring.
The difficulties that needed to be overcome were completing the works within the off season, no access being allowed onto the pitch itself and the height at which the works needed to take place.
Scaffolding was prohibitively expensive and too time consuming whilst using MEWP’s would have meant driving over the pitch and impeding the other critical maintenance work tasks that were taking place.
CAN used a combination of traditional rope access in conjunction with CAN-Span to reach the installation locations. Lighting units were hoisted with power winches for speed and all works were completed without need to access the pitch or remove any fixed furniture.
