Exeter Cathedral Staging
Dating back more than 900 years, the beautiful medieval cathedral in the vibrant city of Exeter is one of the oldest buildings where CPS has worked their magic since trading began in 1966.
CPS were first contacted by Reverend Canon Carl Turner in January 2013 after receiving a recommendation from Peterborough Cathedral where CPS had supplied some demountable staging products which were similar to what was required at Exeter.
Following on from this initial contact a meeting was arranged and a CPS representative met up with the cathedral’s Fabric Advisory Committee early February of the same year where the finer detail of the proposed church staging project was discussed at length.
The team at CPS worked closely with Camilla Finlay, who is the well-respected architect of the cathedral and a director at Acanthus Clews Architects, and together created staging platforms for the nave altar, lectern podium and bishop’s seating.
The bespoke manufactured platforms were decked in 22mm Junckers solid oak hardwood flooring which is suitable for spanning over joists to form a structural base. This unique property of Junckers flooring has enabled CPS to supply stage platforms with a flush-fitting solid oak floor to compliment the aesthetics of this grand building.
These wonderful bespoke staging products were also installed by CPS and have taken pride of place in the spiritual home of the city where a very warm welcome is extended to its many thousands of visitors throughout the year.
