Our success on the iconic Olympic Aquatic Centre with Balfour Beatty made Stewart Fraser the perfect choice to support the Olympic Stadium Transformation, a visionary project that has ensured a lasting legacy for this world class venue. Aspects of design, programme and logistics presented numerous challenges in the evolution of the stadium which included 3m high glass screens as well as 30 minute integrity and insulation Pyrostyle Fire Doors to protect the various new hospitality and service areas developed to give all spectators the ultimate experience.

This transformation on a massive scale meant careful, considered and creative interfacing with the existing structure, particularly when integrating our 14m and 20m long glazed screens. Stewart Fraser is proud to be one of the innovators in design and engineering that have come together and secured the Olympic Stadium’s long term future by transforming it into a cutting edge venue.
