Creagh products have been used in the reconstruction of the No 1 court at one of the UK’s most iconic sport venues, Wimbeldon. Work on the £70m project began in 2017 and will be complete by May 2019. Just like Centre Court, the new No 1 Court - designed by Sir Robert McAlpine, will have a retractable roof. The final capacity will rise by 900, up to 12,400, and add a new two-level public plaza which will take the place of Court No 19.
Creagh supplied 173 ton of precast concrete terracing units onto which the spectator seating has been located. We successfully tendered for the precast concrete special terracing units and steps and worked closely with the Byrne Bros team throughout the build programme to ensure all product specifications and delivery requirements were met. The 173 ton of terracing comprised mainly of straight and curved terrace pieces.
12.2 ton of precast concrete Step Units were also supplied. Creagh’s precast stairs are manufactured from bespoke moulds and can be produced as straight flights with separate or attached landings. Curved, upstands and insert nosings are also available and stairs can include provision for progressive collapse. Stairs are manufactured with the ability to allow for temporary handrails.
Creagh is delighted to be involved in such a prestigious scheme and as the project continues to take shape the contribution that Creaghs products have made can be clearly seen around the arena.View the brochure here
