The Yard: Outdoor Stage at Charleston House

Red Leaf Ground Screws were contacted by PUP Architects to provide temporary foundations for a wooden outdoor stage erection at the historic site of Charleston House in East Sussex.

The erection of the stage took 5 days with a small team, our team worked quickly and efficiently to install four screws for the stage frame to sit on within the first day.

PUP Architects choice to use ground screws for the allowed them to create a fully recyclable stage, when the stage is no longer required at the Yard, all parts including the foundations will be removed, leaving very little indication that the stage had been there at all.
