Fox Sports World Cup Studio
Apollo Scaffold Services supplied the structure for Fox Sports’ radical temporary broadcast studio for their coverage of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Vancouver.
The striking two-storey building providing the base for Fox Sports’ broadcasts throughout the month long tournament was designed and assembled by Vancouver based Matakana Scaffolding Group using Apollo’s 750mm X-Beam system built in the UK at our Barnsley factory.
However, it wasn’t all smooth sailing quite literally, as at the eleventh hour, Apollo had to manufacture a complete second structure which was airfreighted at short notice to Vancouver after the original container travelling by sea became seriously delayed on its journey.
With the ship and its cargo not due to dock in Vancouver until well after the completion date of the structure, this could have spelt disaster. But thanks to the hard work and dedication of Apollo Scaffold Services’ team, the new structure was manufactured in record time and landed in Vancouver to be received by a very relieved Matakana team, before being erected by their experts a full day ahead of schedule.
This project has been the first association between Matakana Scaffolding Group and Apollo Scaffold Services, but we hope this will be the first of many as Matakana are presently in talks to become the agents for Apollo Scaffold Services’ products in North America.
