Ahmarra Installations have completed a joinery fit-out sub-contract for the world famous tennis club.
A series of orders were secured with the AELTC in which Ahmarra’s skilled joiners worked to tight deadlines to deliver the scheme in time for this year’s Championships, whilst ensuring the promised high quality levels of finish and design.
Ahmarra Installations undertook work in the Aorangi Pavilion, Millennium Building and the new areas underneath Courts 14 and 15, which houses the 24-hour media restaurant, a bespoke working area for some 250 photographers as well as new accommodation for the ball boys and girls. This order forms part of AELTC’s Master Plan for the Club and The Championships which includes the construction of a new retractable roof over No.1 Court.
“We are delighted to be associated with such a prestigious British institution and we hope that our efforts will evolve into a long term relationship with this landmark sporting venue” commented Richard Panrucker, Ahmarra Installation’s Director. “Our installation team worked to a very tight programme of works whilst still providing enough flexibility in the project plan to allow for any unforeseen challenges, as it was vital that that we had no negative impact on the day-to-day running of Wimbledon” said Richard.
The highly bespoke works included press, writers and radio desks, dressing room benches, player support desk, wall planter system, counter tops, roller shutter cupboards, shelf units, vanity units, changing cubicles, lecterns and internal fire doors.
