The £23 million project in Kennington, South London for Surrey County Cricket Club involved the demolition of the existing stands at the Vauxhall End and replacement with a Stand over 4 levels and a main curved roof, including open air terraces and a living screen running around the façade of the Stand, resulting in an increase in ground capacity from 18,500 to 23,000.

The Project was programmed into two construction phases. Phase 1 consisted of: demolition of the existing stands, installing piles, concrete sub-structure, erecting steelwork frame and erecting lower seating decks. This phase was completed on time to allow a temporary handover for a limited season of international cricket matches during the Summer of 2004. Phase 2 consisted of: completing the superstructure, M&E services, fitting out and external works.

The Project was handed over during June 2005 on time and budget.
