Lords Cricket Ground deploys Temp-A-Path for England v Sri Lanka Test Match

With the current phase of re-development at Lords Cricket Ground well underway, EFS Europe was called upon to assist with the temporary grandstand erected for the recent test match between England and Sri Lanka. The project was commissioned to increase the seating capacity of the ground whilst the new Warner Stand is rebuilt.
Arena Seating has supported Lords Cricket Ground with temporary seating requirements for many years and they brought in EFS Europe install a pedestrian walkway in front of the temporary grandstand. 200m2 of lightweight plastic Temp-A-Path product in a deep green colour was laid on top of a plastic membrane to further protect the ground.
Rather than laying it after the grandstand had been built, installation of the Temp-A-Path took place during the construction process so that both systems could be integrated into one another. This allowed the front edge of the grandstand and the pitch side barriers to overlap the Temp-A-Path, producing a more presentable finish.
The quality of the final project was particularly crucial as the temporary grandstand was adjacent to the legendary Lords Pavilion, within which sit the members of the world famous Marylebone Cricket Club.
Speaking after the test match, EFS Europe Business Development Manager Jeremy Simpson said:
"Lords is an iconic sporting venue and one that demands the highest standards in every aspect of its operations. We were happy to work on behalf of Dave Withey and the excellent team from Arena Seating to augment their temporary grandstand. This allowed Lords to fulfill its maximum potential for ticket sales during the ongoing redevelopment of the Warner Stand."
The temporary grandstand will remain in place until 5th July for Middlesex County Cricket Club matches.
