Stage One in the News
Working on such a diverse array of projects last year generated quite a few interesting articles in both local and national media.
CEO Mark Johnson was interviewed by Business Quarter magazine (BQ) for their series of features on Yorkshire entrepreneurs. He talked to journalist Andrew Mernin about his career path, his partnership with Jim Tinsley and how problem solving, 3D printing and R&D hold the key to an exciting future at Stage One:
“3D printing has huge potential for the company,” Mark says. “We are already working with some of the 3D print suppliers and have ambitions to use it in our architecture. Normally things like complex sculptures or pieces of architecture would have to be hand crafted or carved if it’s at full scale. If you’ve got a complex 3D curve going in multiple directions, we can print that rather than make a mould, which speeds up the process and allows us to find innovative solutions for a variety of problems…We’re a problem solving business. If someone comes up with a problem, whether it’s a build or automation one, we’ll try to find a solution to fit the bill.”
Our recent work for hospitality clients also saw Neil Franklin speaking to Premier Hospitality magazine about fitting-out the ZHA designed restaurant, The Magazine, at the Sackler Gallery in London, with the fit-out for The Sign of the Don featuring in the December issue.
