Project Mint at the O2 Arena

Once again SH Structures have delivered an unusual and complex project. Formerly known as the Millennium Dome, London’s O2 Arena is a multi-purpose entertainment and retail venue that serves the capital. The addition of a retail area completes the development first started in the 90’s. SH Structures were responsible for the supply and installation  of the internal feature roof along with the dramatic curving staircase that links the two levels of the development. With its timber columns and decorative mesh, the roof provides an impressive screen which give the mall it’s distinctive appearance and demonstrates our ability to deliver projects with a mix of interfacing materials that would be difficult to procure from a single source.The new retail scheme opened in October 2018 which is about twenty years since we first worked within ‘The Dome’ when we supplied and installed the steel structure that formed the primary internal structure for the Nigel Coates Millennium artwork ‘The Bodyzone’.
