Turner & Townsend
Collins were delighted to be awarded the contract for the extension and refurbishment of the Museum Building, the main office facilities for The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), which stages The Championships, Wimbledon.
Works commenced immediately after The Championships 2018 and were completed on schedule in April 2019.
This challenging and prestigious redevelopment and refurbishment delivered additional office space for AELTC staff through the construction of an additional storey on the existing roof area of the building.
Once the new storey was added, the circumference of the building was covered in bespoke solid aluminium fins, complementing the design of the recently redeveloped No.1 Court.
In addition to extending the building, Collins completed the project by re-configuring the existing first floor as well as carrying out essential fire protection works.
The Museum Building project is one of the key components of the AELTC’s Master Plan, which sets out to maintain Wimbledon’s reputation as the world’s premier tennis event and make substantial improvements to the AELTC, its grounds and facilities,through a programme of sustained investment.
“It was privilege for Collins Construction to be a part of this high-profile and prestigious project at one of London’s biggest sporting venues which is steeped in history. We are very proud to have delivered this project as an important part of the AELTC’s long-term plan to maintain The Championships as the premier tennis event in the world.” Tony O’Shea, Project Director
