The highly anticipated final of The Voice is live on ITV this Saturday and the occasion gives Neaco an opportunity to make a timely song and dance about a little-known fact: our products have appeared in every single episode of this series.
The opening sequences feature the show’s home, Media City in Salford Quays, where our Neatdek aluminium grille system has been used as decking for the dramatic footbridge designed by WilkinsonEyre architects. Contestants are often filmed striding across the bridge, so our flooring has been stepped on by plenty of celebrity feet over the past few months.
Linking Media City and The Imperial War Museum of the North, the footbridge is one of many high profile bridge projects which feature Neaco’s Neatdek decking. Others include the Living Bridge in Limerick, the Grand Canal Dock in Dublin, the Peace Bridge in Londonderry, the Millennium Bridge in Gateshead and the Twin Sails Bridge in Poole. The product has many qualities in tune with the needs of bridges and public spaces, including efficient drainage, maintenance-free durability and high slip resistance.
You don’t have to be Tom Jones to appreciate that Neaco know very little about songcraft, but we do know how to take it to the bridge, architecturally speaking!
