The Twickenham South Stand has become one of the most prominent and highly specified stadiums in the UK. 'The home of rugby' was developed to increase to the level of service available on-site, such as hospitality and hotel services.

The South Stand incorporates flexible conference facilities and provides a showroom for the performing arts, a rugby museum and a RFU retail store. It also acts as the organisation's administrative hub. Cundall was commissioned on a full multi-disciplinary basis to undertake the design consultancy input, including the design of the M&E and information technology services. Cundall was also responsible for the provision of a fire strategy to the new site, and achieved significant cost savings through a design managed approach to risk that were agreed with local building control and fire authorities.

Cundall provided both in-house and franchised functions, which included:

  • The prestigious Twickenham Stadium 162-bed Marriott Hotel
  • Conferencing and banqueting suites for Twickenham Experience Ltd, including a banqueting hall which can accommodate 1600 seated for dinner
  • New purpose-built offices for the RFU
  • A 400 seat theatre
  • Franchised cafes, restaurants and bars
  • The integration of systems with existing communication, security and fire systems on site
