EC&I - The brains behind the brawn

Although we're famous for our 'brawny' kinetic structures, those 'brains' are very much here at SCX Special Projects. It's when mechanical and electrical engineering combine that things really move.

Our EC&I team is very happy to answer any questions on how it all works. And we're very happy to help on your EC&I-only projects too.

The brains behind the brawn

We've moved stadium roofs and football pitches... even the odd crane!

What could we move for you?

SCX Special Projects' award-winning engineering team can help you to deliver your moving structure projects.

Our expertise in electrical engineering, control and safety sets us apart. Kinetic structures like the Spurs pitch and Wimbledon roofs need both the power AND the control.
