MEWP hire for stadium and arena construction

Building experts are clear that roof construction is one of the key factors in planning stadium construction – so working at height flexibly, productively and safely is vital to the success of all such project.

Riwal’s powered access hire specialists are team players who provide expert advice, problem solving skills and optimum management systems for aerial platforms for the entire project from initial construction to interior fitout.

Our 58-metre JLG 1850SJ super boom, the world’s tallest boom, is ideal for supporting steel erection, roof canopy installation and curtain wall installation on even the largest stadia.

With hospitality now a vital component of all modern stadiums, the need to work intensively at lower heights to install ducting, electrical systems, lighting, plumbing and signage is more important than ever.

This is where machines in Riwal UK’s scissor lift hire fleet, like the 7.9m electric JLG 6RS and the extra-capacity 8.10m electric Skyjack SJIII 3220 come into their own.

MEWP tracking and bespoke support

Riwal can deliver bespoke MEWP management services that integrate perfectly with a main contractor’s construction programme.

Track and trace means provides you with real-time monitoring of all platforms on hire

Our end-to-end support ensures the right machines are available at the right times, throughout every phase of the stadium or sporting arena build.

This total service package can include providing on-site MEWP fleets supported by full-time maintenance support, a dedicated hire desk, and on-site training.

MEWP security can be supported by Riwal’s Track and Trace system, which provides remote, real-time monitoring of all MEWPs on a construction site, with access controlled by ID cards and PIN codes.

The technology greatly reduces the risk of MEWPs being used by unauthorised personnel, maximising work efficiency, safety and the cost control of working at height operations.


MEWP hire for stadium and arena maintenance

Working at height is also a key component of stadium maintenance programmes – with tasks that include carrying out asset condition surveys, surface cleaning, painting and glass replacement.

Stadiums are also often designed to be developed and added to over many years, requiring short but substantial building and modernisation programmes, often carried out under significant time pressure.

Riwal UK can provide all MEWPs needed for both tasks, including aerial booms, scissor lifts, personnel masts and push-around lifts, ensuring customers get the right mix of machines, just when they need them.

We can also provide a full range of MEWPs to support event management companies using stadiums and sporting arenas for concerts, festivals, and other events.



Modern multi-use stadiums require event branding and banners to be changed regularly

Commitment to MEWP safety and sustainability

Riwal UK’s MEWP hire fleet has modern machines, all featuring the latest personnel safety features. This is vital during stadium construction when teams from many contractors are working closely together.


Riwal UK also provides operator training and PPE such as safety harnesses

Our commitment to safety is enshrined in the Riwal Way so every aspect of our service, from MEWP delivery to collection, is designed to actively reduce risks.

Riwal UK can also provide operator training through our award-winning training division, ALS Safety. This includes IPAF and PASMA operator training, and CITB Site Safety Plus skills training courses.

Sustainable construction to improve efficiency and reduce carbon footprints is a major KPI for most stadium and sporting arena construction and maintenance projects.

Our operations are based on lean principles, so are highly energy-efficient. We also operate the latest zero-emission, low-noise all-electric booms, including the world’s first 43-metre electric boom, an adapted JLG 1350SJP.
