Portfolio

A selection of projects both past and present demonstrates the challenging work that we enjoy working on.  Each form of building is unique across various building sectors.

We make sure that each project receives the same care and attention whatever its scale, from small residential projects to large stadia and commercial developments.

We can provide connection designs in both timber and steel to either British Standards or Eurocodes and also offer a temporary works design service, from lifting frames to temporary support structures.

Centre Court Redevelopment and Retractable Roof

Whilst at Capita Symonds, and later at Edge, John and Richard developed the design and were instrumental in the construction of the whole redevelopment of Centre Court and it’s retractable roof.  This involved a detailed study of the existing structure, analysis and design of the new bowl, fixed roof and moving roof. Initially working for AELTC, John and Richard were subsequently novated to Galliford Try where they assumed the coordination of the team and specialist designers for the development of the moving roof.

Throughout the project 3D structural design played a vital role. The first task was to create a model of the existing structure and site constraints. “As the design progressed and the trade contractors became involved, their production models were incorporated and checked against this base model.  This ensured full coordination and understanding of these key interfaces.

The roof is the only one in the world to operate when the stadium is occupied.

Wimbledon Courts 14 & 15

WH designed and detailed the new basement below Courts 14 & 15 from scheme through to construction as part of the Wimbledon 2020 masterplan.   The basement will provide new accommodation for press, management and ballboy/girls during the championships. Work included 3D CAD and analysis models, design and detailing all reinforced concrete and steel elements and detailing all junctions of new to existing elements.

Demolition and construction was completed in 8 months to ensure no disruption to the 2014 championships. Fit-out will be completed before the 2015 championships when both the courts and new accommodation will be in full use.
