GL Events and Nolan Associates teamed up again to provide the additional seating and Infrastructure for the recent sporting event held in Birmingham in July 2022. The hugely successful sporting event showcased Birmingham’s humanity, equality and destiny.


In recent years, the stadium has undergone extensive redevelopment and modernisation, which will increase the legacy capacity to 18,000, quadrupling the number of spectators.


GL events UK installed temporary grandstands, which increased the stadium’s capacity to 32,000 spectators. All structures were designed by Nolan Associates.

In addition to the temporary seating grandstands to the North (6,674 seats) and South (7,612 seats) of the stadium, GL events UK also provided giant temporary lighting towers, video board infrastructure, containment, hospitality structures and media tribunes as part of their extensive overlay delivery.


Nolan Associates also designed other structures for various other sports throughout the sporting event. These included the temporary stands for bowls at Victoria Park, volleyball at Smithfield market, triathlon at Sutton Park and road cycling at St Nicholas Park Warwick.

Nolan Associates together with GL Events have also recently completed all the grandstands for the 150th Open Golf at St Andrews Course. Work on the 151th Open golf at Royal Liverpool will start soon.
