Design and build company Penny Banks Limited has secured significant contracts with two major sporting events this summer.
Both contracts were awarded on the strength of Penny Banks’ design ethos and its reputation for creating stunning feature areas at many of the UK’s greatest sporting events.
The first contract will see the company deliver design and fit-out for the Champions Restaurant at the Aegon Championships Tennis held at The Queen’s Club, London, in June. The second is to create and install hospitality and public catering areas for The Open, as part of a three-year deal with The R&A.
The Open alone will see almost three kilometres of walling installed and dressed and 15 articulated truckloads of furniture travelling to Royal Birkdale.
John Espley, assistant director for R&A Championship Staging said: “For several years now The R&A has been working with Penny Banks on a variety of projects for The Open. It is always an exciting moment at the outset of each event; watching them take an initial concept creation to their talented team of designers and turn it into dynamic presentations and visuals, before its skilful production crews finally turn our ideas into reality.
Penny Horner, managing director of Penny Banks Limited added: “We’re thrilled to have been awarded these prestigious contracts. It is a real testament to the hard work, dedication and creativity of the entire team that we have been chosen to deliver bespoke hospitality and catering areas of this stature and scale.
“It’s a huge vote of confidence in our capabilities and service levels, we’re looking forward to a long and fulfilling partnership with both event organisers.”
