Overview

Pop Up Power Supplies provided in-ground, flip-lid power units as part of the £52m redevelopment of Lord’s Cricket Ground.

The latest stage of a 20-year plan by owners Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), this extensive development scheme has involved the construction of the Compton and Edrich stands at the Nursery End to increase the ground’s capacity by 2,600 to a capacity of 31,600. These new three-tiered stands designed by two-time Stirling Prize winners WilkinsonEyre vastly improve the sightlines and drastically reduce the amount of restricted view seats, whilst creating two restaurants and 12 units for food and drink outlets.

Product supplied

With matchday hospitality of significant importance to the visitor experience, the scheme’s designers have ensured that outdoor areas are used to their full potential. This has been facilitated by five PUPS02-6060 in-ground power units which have been installed in the food village and Nursery Ground areas. They are a key part of the infrastructure that enables high-quality food and drink to be served to large matchday crowds in outdoor spaces.

These flip-lid units are submerged in the ground to provide food stall operators and caterers with access to power sockets on-demand, minimising trip hazards as only short cables protrude. They also enable a continuous power supply to be delivered as the lid can be locked down for maximum safety.

A mix of 16, 32 and 63 amp configurations were specified for the in-ground units installed at Lord’s to accommodate the specific requirements of the spaces. The units’ flip lids are designed to match the surrounding surface to minimise their visual impact and mean they go virtually unnoticed when not in use.

The PUPS02-6060 units are one part of a range of in-ground and retractable power units available from Pop Up Power Supplies®. All offer a versatile solution for providing power in public spaces of all kinds.
