    Project Description

    We were approached by Actavo Event Solutions, following working together on previous event sites, to provide ground works & steel structure solutions for two temporary rugby grandstands at George Watson College, Edinburgh. The additional stands were to accommodate Edinburgh Rugby trialling a move from their home at Murrayfield to the school campus.

    The works involved installing removeable concrete pad foundations to take a steel portal frame to which Actavo would then install their seating and roof structure. The key to the design was to ensure that the foundations & steelwork could be removed at any time with as little damage as possible to the school grounds.

    As with all event work, timescales were tight, and programme was challenging due to school access/sport activity still taking place on the pitch during the works. In the end the project was completed on time and the first Edinburgh Rugby game was a sell-out.

    Project Information

    • Value : £600k
    • Location : Strathallan Estate
    Project Description

    DF Concerts appointed Alltec Construction to provide bespoke solutions for various crossing points to suit the new T in the Park site at Strathallan Estate. The new festival layout required 7 temporary bridges over the Machany & Presney burns, large tributaries to the River Earn. The site had strict environmental conditions placed upon it, with major concern for pouring concrete foundations so close to the river banks.

    We designed a support solution that utilized driven screw piles, screwed low enough to be hidden by the vegetation allowing them to remain in place all year round. Bridge sections were fabricated at our Glenrothes workshops and once transported to site craned into position. This solution allowed for the bridges and support foundations to be removed easily without leaving any real trace of construction.
