CAN was contracted to remove the advertisement banners and vertical facias, renovate existing steelwork and install laser display screens across the Arthur Wait stand at Selhurst Park Stadium.

Rope access methods were requested by Crystal Palace FC as conducting the works with a telehandler or mobile working platform could damage the pitch, thus affecting the club’s reputation and in a worst-case scenario, the team’s ability to play.

CAN began with the careful removal and disposal of the old banners and facias that were currently in place. After this process, CAN could then access the exposed steelwork and begin to paint and renovate to the visual standards set by Crystal Palace FC. Once completed, the second phase began with the installation of vertical and horizontal sections of Unistrutt onto the newly renovated steelwork.

The modern laser display screens were securely fixed to the ninety frames across the 100-metre-wide stand, aligned to specification. Signal connections were then established between adjacent display screen units across the six displays, employing a plug-and-play connection method. Additionally, the power supply was seamlessly connected to the display screens via previously installed cabling.

The project’s success depended on secure anchorage for technicians working at height. To achieve this, CAN Structures utilised in-situ structural steelwork on the stand, ensuring a stable and safe work environment for all technicians involved.
