We have been working with architects Aukett Fitzroy Robinson on the masterplan proposals for the development which includes significant research and teaching space to provide capacity to expand and consolidate Imperial’s activities, and complement those on the College’s existing West London campuses.
Phase 1 is currently on site where we have also provided Civil and Structural design from concept to completion of this 606-bed postgraduate accommodation development costing £38.8M. It includes four separate, nine-storey concrete frame blocks on the site as well as three residential, three-storey timber frame structures. Designed in association with Aukett Fitzroy Robinson, the scheme will achieve a BREEAM “Excellent” rating, and includes roof mounted photo voltaic cells and a highly efficient CHP system.
Imperial College London is developing a new campus on the old BBC Woodlands site in Hammersmith, just south of the Westway. Currently known as “Imperial West”, the new campus will be a mixed use development, combining research and teaching space with postgraduate accommodation, new homes and retail and leisure uses.
