A Tockwith firm that shrowds its projects in mystery is revealing its work.

Stage One has worked on building the award-winning Thomas Heatherwick cauldron for the London 2012 Olympics which was kept top secret until its unveiling at the opening ceremony.

But the firm, which is currently constructing the UK Pavilion for the Milan 2015 Expo, has launched a brand new website to show what goes on behind the scenes.

Stage One Sales and Marketing Director, Tim Leigh explained: “We wanted to open our doors and let people take a better look at what we do and how we do it. A new website was the perfect way to do this.

“It’s difficult for us to sum up what we do at Stage One, especially as the scope of work that we’ve undertaken has grown both in volume and diversity in recent years.

“We now also manufacture and create virtually everything our clients require, right here, in our workshops. We’ll be updating the site regularly so you can see what we’ve been up to.”

The new website will showcase some of Stage One’s most recent projects and the new direction of its creative construction and manufacturing services.

The company manages the whole creative and creation process, from the brief to the big idea, on projects such as Olympic ceremonies, live events, sculptures, and specialist build projects.

Stage One, established in 1996, employs over 90 craftsmen, designers, engineers, technologists and artists, at its base in Tockwith.
