OFR Consulting are currently working closely with the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) on several refurbishment and alteration projects across the site. This is underpinned by the production of fire strategy summaries and integrated fire risk assessments for every building on the site, which has provided a clear, consistent suite of documents for the AELTC to base their fire safety management on. These are also now used as briefing documents for ongoing projects across the site.
This has been further supported by a fire risk grading exercise which has been developed in conjunction with Zurich Insurance to assess factors beyond Building Regulations such as protection of branding, global reputation and operational continuity.
Our projects at Wimbledon include the following:
1 Court redevelopment
Museum building extension
New Media pavilion
New covered courts building
Millennium Building redevelopment
We have also provided fire safety advice for a number of smaller projects around the site.
"The opportunity to work on behalf of the AELTC at this prestigious site has been an incredible experience for our team — many of whom are huge tennis fans! These developments required specialist knowledge which we were well positioned to provide."
