Five things you need to know about temporary staging

When it comes to temporary staging, there’s a world of possibilities that make it easy to host an amazing event, from concerts, to sporting matches, indoor or outdoor occasions. But temporary staging isn’t just as easy as throwing up a pre-made solution – there’s a lot of behind the scenes work that goes into making sure your event is safe, looks fantastic and delivers beyond initial expectations. Read on for the top five things you need to know about temporary staging:

1

Temporary staging can provide many functions

Temporary staging can provide many functions

Temporary staging doesn’t just need to be for gigs or music festivals. Did you know that it can also be used for outdoor and indoor events, as well as be branded? We always do a full site survey with structural and wind calculations in order to make sure your staging solution withstands the weather and makes the most of your space, and run through all your ideas with the use of CAD technology. This gives you the ability to see all the different ways temporary staging can be used and gives you a feel for how your event will be brought to life.

Temporary structures don’t just have to be staging

Temporary structures don’t just have to be staging

When you think of temporary staging, you might think of big concert sets or outdoor theatre structures. But it can also be used for creating extra seating at events like football matches. One of the places that we’ve done this is Jersey Football Club, where we doubled it in size, transforming it from a 7,000 seater stadium into a 14,000 seater stadium. What’s more, it looked and felt like a permanent structure and had its own unique design.

Temporary staging doesn’t just get thrown up

Putting up temporary staging looks like an easy process, but before you get to the build stage there’s a lot of behind the scenes work that must be completed. From a full site survey and structural calculations, to weather predictions, CAD visualisation, AV technology planning and health and safety preparation, making sure the background work has been done first is essential.

Temporary staging is more convenient and cost effective

Temporary staging is more convenient and cost effective

When considering staging or seating options, you might be wondering whether to go for a permanent or temporary structure. When you only need a stage for a short series of events or don’t require extra seating all year round, going for a temporary structure is far more flexible and is cost effective. After all, shelling out for permanent structures or seating when they’re only going to get used twice a year isn’t always cost effective.

5

Temporary staging is much more flexible

Temporary staging and seating arrangements offer far more flexibility than their permanent counterparts and mean that you can continue to modify your design if it doesn’t quite work in practise. It also offers the benefit of being able to upstage with a range of custom installations.
