The key to our manufacturing process is really getting to the heart of what our customers need. That might sound obvious, but we’re well known for challenging what’s asked of us – and that makes for a better, more sustained solution. Our customers entrust us with their reputation, and we’re committed to delivering on that, with faultless, high-performance, products that they can be proud of.

World-class solution for world-class project

Khalifa International Stadium, the first in the State of Qatar, was built in 1976 and has hosted several international events, but staging the 2006 Asian Games required enlargement and modernization. Plus the development committee wanted an iconic stadium and a world-class legacy for Doha and beyond.

This complex, demanding project, which amongst other things required an increase of 30,000 capacity, brought together a crew from across the world, including Belgian developers, Australian Architects, Indian steel contractors, an American fabric supplier, and us, all the way from Hull! This world-class facility, with its new, distinctive roof design and signature lighting arch also incorporated a private box for the Crown Prince of Qatar.

The biggest challenge here was the environment - deserts creates real extremes; the steelwork and cables have to withstand temperatures ranging between 5 and 85 degrees, the roof fabric has to withstand not only the wind but the weight of sand heaped upon it after sandstorms. Plus flat surrounds make near constant wind another consideration. We were asked to manufacture and install the rolling gear which make the roof panels open and close, providing air-flow for the fans in the stadium. An intricate job involving several other contractors and with all those environmental challenges, this was no mean feat, but it was a job made for us and our blend of experience, knowledge and collaborative approach.

We also had a deadline to work to – time was of the essence but without compromising longevity or quality of the stadium’s sophisticated design, fabrication, machining and surface-treatment of drive and non-drive pulleys. Finally, and so as to not to leave anything to chance, we packaged, exported the pieces and supervised their installation on-site in Doha.
