New fabric roof at Lord’s Cricket Ground 

CAN, an RSK company, may have played a small but important role in England finally clinching the Cricket World Cup in 2019.

Built in 1814 and known as the home of cricket, Lord’s is the most famous cricket ground in the world. The Warner Stand’s innovative design involves a semi-translucent fabric roof supported by a steel and timber structure. The fabric roof covers an area of 850 square metres and is supported by 17 lightweight and durable panels and 8 Tensotherm panels, a translucent and insulted roofing material.

Using a combination of fall restraints and arrests and industrial rope access techniques, CAN engineers accessed the roof and installed the new fabric roof. This cost-effective approach enabled a small team to complete the installation quickly, and perhaps even helped England secure their first world cup.
