Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London. E20 2ST
The Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, commonly known as the Olympic Stadium, is a stadium located in Stratford, London, England. It is located at Marshgate Lane in London’s Stratford district in the Lower Lea Valley. It was constructed primarily to serve as the host stadium for the 2012 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, where it hosted the track and field events, along with its opening and closing ceremonies.
The former Olympic Stadium is currently undergoing a transformation in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, reinventing itself as an all-year round multi-use venue that will deliver a lasting sporting, cultural and community legacy in east London.
Elements of the transformation work include installing the largest roof of its kind in the world, a community track, innovative retractable seating, spectator and hospitality facilities and external landscaping. The stadium re-opened temporarily for five matches at Rugby World Cup 2015, before opening permanently as the new home of West Ham United Football Club and national competition centre for UK Athletics in 2016.
zencontrol supplied and commissioned their addressable lighting control system, controlling all general lighting and, more importantly, the 14 Field of play paddles. Each paddle contains around 50 lights and can offer differing combinations depending on the sport being played and the type of lighting required. We also provided full support at the venue through the string of 2015 Rugby World Cup matches played there.
