Event: London E-Prix
Event Date: July 2021 – 2024
Location: ExCel, London

Since 2021 Acorn have worked in partnership with Formula E to successfully deliver the temporary structures at the London E-Prix, Excel.

Due to the rules of the venue and the high profile of the event, strict timescales are imposed. Because Acorn are a preferred supplier of ExCel, Acorn crew had already undergone accreditation and are familiar with the site. Acorn worked together with Formula E and alongside other contractors to ensure the key milestones of the project were achieved on time and that the project was successfully delivered from build to dismantle.
