StadiumTM’s story started out at Burnley FC in 2009 where our Managing Director and Owner of StadiumTM, David McAtamney was called upon for his Traffic Management expertise and to implement a new plan for the club. David’s knowledge of Traffic Management and logistics ranges from both national and international ventures over a 30 year span. Notably he was a part of establishing the logistics and supporting the development of Saudi Arabia in their infrastructure and airport logistics during the 1980’s.
Today David remains very passionate about this and is driven by the goal of creating safe spaces for all. Aiding in the delivery of events and ensuring they are secure for all.
From 2009 the company has grown and gone from strength to strength. The first major milestone for the company was the London 2012 Olympic Games. StadiumTM stepped in and filled the shortfalls of service provision. The company recruited and trained around 700 staff and were present at 24 venues.
This experience at the Olympics grew the company considerably; in 2013 the StadiumTM Training Company was established. The in-house training is a vital and unique asset to the company, we aim to provide high-quality stewards and security. We take this seriously and do not simply see training as a ‘tick the box’ task. Everyone that joins StadiumTM receives training and is awarded a NVQ level 2/3 in Spectator Safety & Customer Service.
Over the past few years it has become apparent that clients appreciate the convenience of dealing with one single company. Giving peace of mind to our clients and their events is of high priority and we wish to be flexible and diverse in our approach.
In 2015 the company grew once again, this time in the sector of Facilities Management. Within this, we can and have provided car park management, cleaning and manned guarding.
Despite being established for less than a decade we have worked and are currently working with numerous high profile football teams in both the Premiership and Championship leagues. Our events and facility management experience being expansive: England 2015 Rugby World Cup, 2014 Commonwealth Games Glasgow, Bath Racecourse and Aston Villa Bodymoor Heath Training Ground.
Our most recent development is our new service Hostile Vehicle Mitigation barriers hire & installation, launched in late 2017. This is an innovative development in crowd safety and security; we deliver with our partner ATG Access.
We are always looking for new opportunities and look forward to what is in the next chapter of the StadiumTM story!
