Winchester Lawn Tennis and Squash Club
Four-court indoor tennis centre
Dove Construction was appointed as main contractor for the design and construction of the new four court indoor tennis arena at the Winchester Lawn Tennis and Squash Club.
The original planning permission was based upon a pre-formed Canadian building but shortly before the project started the overseas supplier went into receivership. We were then presented with the challenge to design and deliver a tension membrane building which would mimic the profile of the original therefore ensuring compliance with the local authority planning department. Using our in-house experience and working closely with Lindab-Astron - one of the world’s largest steel portal frame manufacturers - and quality British suppliers we have constructed on time and within budget a building surpassing the original specification which has impressed both the club and the LTA. The project is nearing completion and will be ready for the first competition in November 2010.
