Potter Raper are thrilled to announce that 245 Hammersmith Road project won ‘Project of the Year (over £50m)’ in the 2020 Construction News Awards took place on Thursday 26th November.
The award was well deserved and we are pleased that we got the chance to be part of the project by providing Project Management, Employer’s Agent and Principal Designer services.
The joint venture development by Legal and General and Mitsubishi Estate London provided circa 250,000 sq ft NIA Grade A office space comprising two wings joined by an “active” area/breakout space accessed from a central core. The front wing offers retail at street level with offices over 9 floors, whilst the rear wing overlooks the podium park and is arranged over 10 floors. The top 3 levels benefit from roof terraces.
A new piazza is created at ground level and becomes a public square fronting Hammersmith Road, whilst the podium to the rear of the building is re-configured into a space that will become an urban pocket park for the occupiers, the surrounding neighbours and the local community.
