Premier Technical Services (PTSG) is completing fixed wire testing at the Emirates Stadium in London.
Ohmega Testing, part of PTSG, has previously completed the fixed wire testing on EE telecommunications buildings and began working on stadium, which is home to Arsenal Football Club and holds more than 60,000, in the New Year.
Andrew Dack, managing director at PTSG, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the contract to carry out the fixed wire testing at such a prestigious sporting venue. The Emirates Stadium is an outstanding facility and one that we are very proud to be associated with.”
The Emirates Stadium is the third largest football stadium in England after Wembley and Old Trafford.
In 1997, Arsenal FC explored the possibility of relocating to a new stadium, having been denied planning permission by Islington Council to expand its home ground of Highbury.
After considering various options (including purchasing Wembley), the club bought an industrial and waste disposal estate in Ashburton Grove in 2000.
A year later they won the council’s approval to build a stadium on the site. Relocation began in 2002, but financial difficulties delayed work until February 2004. Emirates Airline was later announced as the main sponsor for the stadium. Work was completed in 2006 at a cost of £390m.
