The Civic Trust Awards judges commented that the stands were, “a great concept, which serves its purpose well and makes a very positive contribution to those using the ground.”
Sam Wright, Project Director at WilkinsonEyre commented: “We were thrilled to be recognised by the Civic Trust for our designs of the Compton and Edrich Stands at Lord’s Cricket Ground. We have a fantastic working relationship with MCC and are proud to support them in the stewardship and incremental improvement of the renowned Home of Cricket."
Robert Ebdon, Estates Director at MCC commented: “We are delighted to receive this accolade for the Compton and Edrich stands – the largest development project in MCC’s history. The project to rebuild the stands and transform the Nursery End of the Ground was a huge success despite the difficulties brought on by the pandemic. The stands look fantastic and allow cricket fans to experience the world-class facilities and unrivalled views of the pitch.”
Congratulations to all involved in the project including Buro Happold, ISG and our client MCC.
