Sports + Events

To provide a safe, secure and a great experience for the visitor through crowd safety advice

introduction

The quality of environment and level of service offered at sporting venues, arenas and major events is constantly evolving, with these leisure facilities being recognised as a driver for regeneration, business and tourism.
Our team consults to some of the highest profile venues in the world, by providing design advice and operational solutions which make efficient use of space and demonstrate operational resilience.

OUR APPROACH

For all our clients we help to make their assets safe and secure and provide a great experience for the visitor. For the owners and operators and their architects, we help deliver assets that make efficient use of space and that are cost-effective to build and operate, while being flexible and resilient. Our advice draws on our understanding of spectator behaviour in different environments, using insights gained through our varied experience and our ability to capture and interpret people movement patterns from data.
