The London Stadium, the home of West Ham United Football Club - formerly the Olympic Stadium, underwent an impressive renovation under the guidance of Fabric Architecture, international tensile fabric structure specialists.
Tasked with designing, engineering and installing large-scale fabric canopies over the retractable seating voids inside the London Stadium, Fabric Architecture looked to Lesjöfors to develop a spring solution that aligned with their engineering requirements.
Nigel Browne, Director of Design and Engineering at Fabric Architecture said: “Lesjöfors Heavy Springs UK were fast, efficient and very knowledgeable in assisting us to design a system that helped dissipate the loads from the canopies.”
Michael Gibbs, Managing Director of Lesjöfors Heavy Springs UK concludes: “Working with an icon in the sporting arena and with such a highly regarded construction and architectural design firm and assisting their problem solving, was really exciting for the team. In particular, our Production Managers love of West Ham, and subsequent suggestion that the springs were powder coated in the clubs famous claret colour, added a personal touch that has truly made the team feel part of sporting history.”
