Ascot Racecourse - Projects - Ridge & Partners LLP

Ridge has worked closely with Ascot Racecourse for a number of years providing services to successfully deliver projects. These have included the creation of a new Royal Viewing Terrace, refurbishment and alterations to various hospitality areas, alterations to car parks and the re-modelling of the east end of the concourse.

Based on deep knowledge and experience, our specialists understand the operational issues around the implementation of projects within a working racecourse and the need to involve various demanding stakeholders. The vast majority of the projects have to be designed, procured and delivered within very tight programmes around race days and strict budget constraints.

The many services we have provided on a multitude of projects include:

Concourse Alterations

Design, procurement and management of significant alterations to glazing, bars and Tote outlets at the east end of the concourse, in order to create a new open plan hospitality area. The project had to be delivered in a very short programme with the immovable deadline of Royal Ascot 2013. The work involved the design and installation of 5.5m high frameless glazing to enclose previously open areas of the concourse.

Crowd Alleviation Works to Concourse

Ascot identified an issue with crowd control around a certain area of the concourse just prior to the start of races.  Ridge was appointed to review this and monitor crowd movements during race days. Our experts then produced a number of designs to alleviate the crowd issue. These involved relocating bars and increasing the number of exits from the concourse down on to the main viewing steppings, together with associated alterations to radial gangways and crowd barriers. A design by Ridge was then implemented in time for Royal Ascot 2014.
