Tanya Ross - Buro Happold (London 2012 Olympic Stadium)

left-quoteThe work was carried out in a timely and effective manner helping Ingra to meet the excelerated build period. The proactive advice they provided with respect to value engineering also helped us to optimise expenditure. Six months now after the opening of the Arena, performers and audiences alike have praised the acoustics and sound systems under a diverse mix of concert usesleft-quote

Vesna Ledic - Ingra, Project Director for Arena Zagreb

left-quoteVanguardia have made it really easy to bring the show into the stadium, I know that from a sound system point of view everything is taken care of. Their detailed work during the construction means that the system is really as user friendly as it can be, it sounds great in the stadium and their engineers can also make it happen on the show dayleft-quote

Joe O’Herlihy - U2 Sound Director (Wembley Stadium)

left-quoteTo be fair, the sound has been massively better. Last year we were having to run so low that it wasn't possible, that hasn't been the case this year. Generally, we've been running between 101 and 103 decibels, sometimes 107, amazing!left-quote
