We were commissioned to carry out a blast vulnerability assessment for the design of the new No.1 Court at Wimbledon.

The new stadium was designed by KSS Architects and Thornton Tomasseti Structural engineers, providing an updated, contemporary, new playing court which included a retractable roof. 

We assessed the effects of a Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) on the stadium façade and structure and provided design measures that could be included to mitigate the level of hazard arising from a terrorist attack. We then worked with the design team to incorporate those measures.
