Elevated platforms allow for external storage without occupying valuable space for parking and for crowd management. In fact, when not used as storage, elevated platforms can increase the available parking or provide further public space for facilities and activities.
The pitch can be stored on any flat area nearby the stadium. The modular nature allows for an almost fluid transformation from a complete pitch inside the stadium to a pitch which can be stored outside the stadium, either as single unit in the one location or as several smaller units in different locations, so utilising any available space.
We have six growth chambers at our research and demonstration site. Each chamber is equipped with LED lighting rigs, irrigation systems, sensors and other infrastructure. This has enabled the STRI research team to determine the best possible set up to be used in the StadiaPitch Storage Building. It has also enabled the team to determine how to best use the relevant software and to develop unique growth maintenance programmes and procedures for groundsmen to use while the pitch is in the storage building.
