Crowd control solution for The O2 Arena

Crowd control solution for The O2 Arena

With only 13 weeks from tender to site, Boon Edam Ltd was asked to lend an expert hand in the transformation of London’s Millennium Dome into a sports and music venue.

As one of the most recognised London landmarks, with 100m high yellow support towers, Boon Edam Ltd were tasked in providing a crowd controlling solution for the central arena.

Working alongside the main contractor on the project, Sir Robert McAlpine, from concept to installation, Boon Edam transformed the perimeter of the arena into a pedestrian traffic control zone.

In order to control the pedestrian flow, before and after an event at the 23,000 capacity O2 arena, Boon Edam provided the ultimate solution in the way of 24 bespoke 2 wing pivoted entrance doors.

Located on the two main entrances to the O2 arena, the 2 wing pivoted entrance doors can be operated 3 at a time, or all together, in order to stop and control the flow of pedestrian traffic.

With the specification for the project changing, the procurement program changed to facilitate an increase of the doors crowd loading capacity from 2kN to 5 kN, the company addressed health, safety and quality issues, in order to produce the most efficient crowd controlling solution.

The entrance solution on London’s newest venue is an example of exceptional teamwork to transform a standard product into an ultimate control solution.
