BDP has clinched an 'Olympic' design award silver medal for the No 1 Court at Wimbledon, where the 'lightness'of the scheme's roof structure was singled out for special praise. The award, from the International Olympic Committee/International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities, will be presented at the 17th International IAKS Congress in Cologne from 7-9 November.The jury commented: 'This roof structure is of high quality. In spite of the stadium's size, it undoubtedly helps to create the intimate atmosphere desired by players and tennis fans. The new arena is a welcome addition to Wimbledon and to the tennis world.'
