Artelia has been working at The Oval since 2007 on a range of projects. When The Oval was one of the Cricket Grounds chosen to host the 20Twenty World Cup, a large number of upgrade projects needed to be completed prior to the event, most significantly the installation of the first retractable, permanent floodlighting at a cricket ground in the UK. Artelia was appointed to manage projects in the stadium, including this installation: all to a very tight timescale.
Our most recently completed project is the new Peter May Stand. The project has created an extra 1,450 seats, raising the ground’s capacity to 25,300, whilst providing better spectator facilities, new retail catering in the enlarged understand concourse area which can also be adapted for exhibition and event use. A new roof terrace, The Garden, offers one of the best views in world cricket, widening the ground’s hospitality offering.
