EOS Facades has been commissioned to create two perimeter walls for the redevelopment taking place at Court No.1 of the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club stadium complex at Wimbledon. EOS delivered a fully inclusive service of design, supply and scheduling, with Prater as the installation contractor.
The bespoke solution, which consists of curved inner and outer walls that extend the entire circumference of the building, conceals the mechanism of a new open/close roof structure being built. EOS applied a lightweight solution to create an integral masking screen that virtually eliminates any sign of the industrial support infrastructure.
The court-side inner wall was completed in April this year with the outer wall scheduled for construction following the 2017 Championships.
