Bespoke joinery fit-out for Wimbledon tennis club

  • 7 Sep 2015

Ahmarra Installations has completed a bespoke joinery fit-out for the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) at Wimbledon.

Ahmarra secured a series of orders with the AELTC to deliver the scheme in time for this year’s Championships, whilst ensuring high quality levels of finish and design.

It undertook work in the Aorangi Pavilion, Millennium Building and the areas underneath Courts 14 and 15, which houses the 24-hour media restaurant, a bespoke working area for up to 250 photographers and new accommodation for the ball boys and girls.

Ahmarra fitted joinery in the new 24-hour media restaurant, located under Courts 14 and 15.

The bespoke joinery works included press, writers and radio desks, dressing room benches, player support desks, a wall planter system, counter tops, roller shutter cupboards, shelf units, vanity units, changing cubicles, lecterns and internal fire doors.

The project forms part of AELTC’s scheme for the club and The Championships, which also includes the construction of a retractable roof over Court 1.

Richard Panrucker, Ahmarra Installation’s Director commented: “We are delighted to be associated with such a prestigious British institution and we hope that our efforts will evolve into a long term relationship with this landmark sporting venue.

Our installation team worked to a very tight programme of works whilst still providing enough flexibility in the project plan to allow for any unforeseen challenges, as it was vital that that we had no negative impact on the day-to-day running of Wimbledon.”
