Acorn Event Structures wins top industry Innovation Award at the National Access and Scaffolding Confederation’s AGM.
Acorn Event Structures is an Innovation Award winner in the 2016 Inaugural National Access and Scaffolding Confederation (NASC) Scaffolding Production awards, scooping the award for their £1.8M 50m (w) x 20m (h) x 90m (l) temporary event structure at Creamfields festival this year.
There were eight entries for the inaugural biennial NASC Scaffolding Production Innovation Award – launched this Summer to celebrate the very best developments in new scaffolding materials and products from inventive NASC members at the forefront of change in the scaffolding industry.
Speaking about Acorn, the judges said, “Acorn came through in creating an innovative structure using an innovative product. Their aim is the help clients delivery world-class, unique and memorable events – specialising in innovative, temporary scaffold event structures. Their brief was to push the boundaries of festival design. It took months of collaboration and design, and the effect was to give every festival goer enjoyment of the premium technical production and high end immersive technology. It is an exceptional product borne out of determination to reach solutions in close liaison with a manufacturer and client. The judges made their decision calling the project “innovation at its best””.
“We’re experiencing more demand from every corner of the events industry for structures which create impact and meet increasingly ambitious production specifications,” says Andy Nutter, Acorn’s Managing Director. “The reaction on social media (#steelyard) to the new structure has been phenomenal, demonstrating how the introduction of our Super Structure addresses a specific market need for temporary structures which push the boundaries and provide the foundations for great events.”
