Willmott Dixon to deliver new complex for All England Lawn Tennis Club

The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) has chosen Willmott Dixon to construct an integrated facility adjacent to the venue for the Championships, Wimbledon.

The project on Somerset Road will involve the demolition of existing indoor courts to be replaced with a facility that will enhance the AELTC’s offering for both members and competitors.

Twelve new tennis courts — six indoor and six outdoor — will be built, with associated clubhouse facilities, and a 338-vehicle car park.

Work will commence this month, with completion expected by the end of October 2021.

Roger Forsdyke, managing director at Willmott Dixon for south London and the South East, said: “We are looking forward to be working with the AELTC to create these superb new facilities in a location that is synonymous with excellence in everything associated with tennis. 

“We’ll be bringing our experience of working in live environments to ensure we keep any impact of work on the local community to an absolute minimum — something underlined by our projects regularly scoring above average marks by the Considerate Constructors Scheme.”

Willmott Dixon has recently delivered new hospitality facilities at Twickenham’s East Stand, restored the Commonwealth Institute building into a new home for the Design Museum and completed extensive restorations at Alexandra Palace.

It is currently upgrading the National Gallery by Trafalgar Square.
