Set Stage Builders

As experienced set stage builders, we take a consolidated approach towards event construction, with all the processes being undertaken by IMA - including our bespoke set building services.

IMA has extensive design and build manufacturing capabilities, with design for manufacture (DFM) enabling us to produce high quality products for all specifications within a shortened turnaround time. All processes - from conception with our designer all the way to the construction on site - are completed in-house, alongside our structural engineers, ensuring the quality of IMA’s products is maintained at our exceptional standards and clear communication regarding project progression is always available.

With over a decade of operating as set stage builders within the event construction industry, IMA has built a robust supply chain and has established industry connections which enable us to bring our client's visions to fruition, no matter how unique.

With years of experience, our highly skilled team always works on time and on budget, with our standardised framework for sets meaning we can focus on perfecting bespoke elements whilst framing can be quickly accounted for with a modular, flatpack design. Our strong and secure staging system is ideal for all types of events, from exhibition and conference stage sets to car launches and catwalks.

IMA’s complete management of all sized projects aims to alleviate stresses experienced by our clients whilst constructing physical sets. We have a wealth of experience to offer, catering to the needs of small and large events alike on a global basis, and have the infrastructure and industry experience to achieve this to the highest standard.

We further provide bespoke backdrops and props for complete staging alongside set building, across the UK and beyond.

What is set building used for?

Set building and construction is the process of creating a visual representation of an environment or scene. Set building is primarily done on stages of events, with the aim of making it look attractive, creative, and eye-catching.

Why is stage set building and design important?

As set stage builders, we help set the tone of the event. The lighting, graphics and props all play a crucial part in indicating what the audience should expect from the event. It also enhances the experience of the audience, helping them to engage in the action.

Set building can emphasise your company branding. If you are holding a press event, having subtle company touches within your set design reminds the audience who is holding the event, and draws eyes to the important aspects of your messaging and branding.
