Durham County Cricket Club

Leading column casings manufacturer, Contour Casings Ltd, has teamed up with Durham County Cricket Club as part of the redevelopment of the Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground.

Contours’ Aluminium Encasement System was chosen as the ideal exterior finishing product for the new function rooms opening in time for the 2011/12 season, and the solution to the problem of unsightly exposed building structures.

The Emirates ICG is a world class sporting and music venue which regularly attracts visitors from all over the world for events, from huge open-air concerts to sporting occasions. This Summer also sees the return of International Cricket, with England taking on India in a NatWest one day International.

The in-house design team at Contours Casings worked closely with the client and identified Aluminium column casings as the aesthetic solution to exposed building structures. The clean lines of the Don Robson Pavilion are complimented by the casings, which are are also robust enough to withstand the rigours of an outdoor application in a busy sporting venue, requiring minimal lifetime maintenance. Contours’ manufacturing department then employed the latest computer software to deliver a product which satisfied all scheme criteria, before Contours’ installation team moved in to complete the project, completing the full turnkey service.

Richard Dowson, Operations and Events Manager for Durham CCC, said, “We were looking for high-quality, yet cost-effective encasement solution as part of the redevelopment of the Emirates Stadium. The product needed to be professional-looking and aesthetically pleasing, while still being strong enough to perform well in an area of high-volume traffic; Contour Casings were able to tick all of these boxes for us. We have been extremely happy with the product, the support package that Contour offered and would recommend their encasement systems without hesitation”.

Leigh Simpson, Managing Director at Contour Casings Ltd, said, “We are delighted to be working with such a renowned brand as Durham CCC and on such a prestigious development. With the experience and expertise we have built up over many years of successfully operating within this sector, we have been able to deliver the professional and functional solution that the client was looking for”.

Contour offer an extensive encasement system range, containing a vast selection of sizes, shapes and finishes to choose from and with a column casing suitable for any environment, all supported by a unique service package.
