Stadia & Entertainment

SCX Special Projects has established itself as a global pioneer in kinetic architecture for sports stadia and entertainment venues.

Our work on the two retractable roofs at Wimbledon, and the ground-breaking retractable football pitch, surround and grow lights at Tottenham Hotspur, has changed what the world expects of large-scale moving structures.

The stadia and entertainment sector is constantly looking for new ways to engage audiences and to reduce the time that venues are left empty.

SCX Special Projects has engineered solutions around the world to help solve these problems: whether it's preventing the rain from stopping play at Wimbledon, or enabling Tottenham Hotspur's newest stadium to host NFL and concert events, or helping to build rock concert stage sets in Japan.

AELTC No.1 Court Retractable Roof

Putting the headline-grabbing projects to one side, we have had a regular presence in stadia and entertainment, including bespoke mechanical handling solutions for theatres, auditoriums, fan venues and more.

Whether you need to build a stage set, retract a roof, remove rows of seats, or deploy grow lights, SCX Special Projects can help you all the way from initial concept, through design, build and installation, and ongoing servicing and maintenance too.

Here are a few examples of our stadia and entertainment work:
