KSS – a leading architecture and design practice specialising in major sports venues and training facilities – has confirmed that their redeveloped No.1 Court at Wimbledon has been shortlisted at the Structural Steel Awards.
Over the last three years, No.1 Court has undergone major refurbishment works including new fixed and retractable roofs allowing for uninterrupted play throughout The Championships.
Other major redevelopment works provided new state-of-the-art hospitality areas with spectacular views across the outside courts and the creation of a new external English garden plaza.
The reconfigured No.1 Court opened last month on the 10th anniversary of a similar structure over Centre Court, and provides an exciting future for the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club enhancing Wimbledon’s international status as the ultimate venue for tennis.
The No.1 Court project delivery team includes lead architect KSS, contractor Sir Robert McAlpine, cost consultants Turner & Townsend, structural engineers Thornton Tomasetti, building services engineers ME Engineers and landscape architects Hyland Edgar Driver.
The project delivery team said that they were looking forward to the awards ceremony in October.
