Project Brief:

The £23 million project in Kennington, South London for Surrey County Cricket Club involved the demolition of the existing stands at the Vauxhall End and replacement with a stand over 4 levels and a main curved roof, including open air terraces and a living screen running around the façade of the stand, resulting in an increase in ground capacity at the Oval from 18,500 to 23,000. The redevelopment of the Oval Cricket Ground was completed on budget and on time. FP McCann were selected as manufacturer for the additional 4,500 seating terrace.
