The Vision

Being the primary site for Tennis in Great Britain, our goal was to provide first class facilities for the diverse occupants to realise their potential, both on and off the court.

Our Role

For this diverse project we were appointed to provide full project management on the entire scheme including site assessment and acquisition, design team appointments, planning application and approval, buildings and court design, development costs, production of master programmes, detailed short term programmes and acted as Employer's Agent on behalf of the LTA.

The project was delivered to programme and within budget.
