QED installs impressive new bar refurbishment at famous Scotstoun Stadium
QED was recently appointed by Encore Hospitality Services, part of the Cordia Group, to supply a new back bar system for the club bar at Scotstoun Stadium.
Scotstoun Stadium is an athletics and rugby union venue located in the west end of Glasgow. Glasgow Warriors rugby union club will play their home games there from the 2012-13 season onwards. In 2012, the Stadium hosted the Scotland Sevens, the Scottish leg of the IRB Sevens World Series.
The facility first opened its doors to the public in 1915 as Scotstoun Showgrounds, a venue for agricultural shows. It was soon being used for sporting events and, as a result, the grandstand was erected. The facility underwent a huge renovation in 2008 and on completion was re-opened in 2010 by the Princess Royal. As well as its regular programme, the stadium will also be used as a training venue for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014.
The QED back bar system consists of 8 metres of back wall shelving, finished in cherry wood with mirrored inserts, glass shelving and overhead canopy spotlights
QED also supplied a True TDD-2 two font beer dispenser. This takes 2 x ½ barrels of beer or lager. It can be fitted with castors to become totally mobile and is available in 1, 2, 3 or 4 fonts.
The job was completed in time for Glasgow Warriors first home game of the season.
Commenting on the installation, Ian Boardley of Encore Hospitality Services said: ‘We are delighted with the quality of the QED equipment and their expert installation skills. The new back bar system has completely transformed a rather tired looking area into a vibrant new bar facility.’
