All eyes were on Twickenham Stadium during the Rugby World Cup; as the premier location for rugby in the UK and the flagship location for games in the tournament, it was under intense scrutiny to be up to scratch for matches and the 81,000 plus spectators visiting.
Part of this involved the creation of a Twickenham Pavilion and Champions Park, two state of the art hospitality environments located in the North Car Park and a stone’s throw from the stadium entrance. The Webb Ellis Suites, a luxury dining location with its own private restaurant located in the West Car Park, was also an area chosen for use.
As high profile hospitality areas, and one of the first things people see on their way into the stadium, the regular car park grounds did not have the impact befitting an event of such scale. With the clock ticking until kick off, the grounds were in desperate need of a presentation upgrade.
Trulawn were asked to supply and install 3500sqm of our grass in a relatively short space of time across all three of these areas. As an area of high footfall, and with aesthetic impression in mind, a durable but authentic looking grass was needed to support the area. Trulawn Leisure was chosen to fulfill these needs and is a grass used for both short and long term events.
