The Challenge

We were approached by a large events company to design a slide to fit onto a huge, stylised Christmas Tree being installed in Wembley for the Christmas Market season.

At 9m high, it was a gigantic slide which needed to be fixed to a structure that had already been designed.  Pressure was on to ensure the slide fitted first time and in time for the opening of the markets.

With time being of the essence, we worked closely with the Christmas Tree designers on both the fit and the structural elements of the design.  Using SolidWorks, we quickly produced a design for a bespoke slide to meet the brief and delivery date.

The Result

The end result was awesome!  The slide sections were shipped down on hiab delivery vehicles so they could be unloaded and left for the on-site crane to lift into place.  The slide was designed so each section could be fitted without needing the following section to be attached allowing a single crane to install the slide.

Thanks to our on-point manufacturing accuracy, the fit was straightforward and the tight deadline was met.

Once installed, all of the additional ‘wow’ factors were added with lights and music completing the installation creating a truly spectacular seasonal show.
