Our large-scale timber framed extension/refurbishment, with Studio RHE and Resolution Property, has received planning permission. The scheme will create a new landmark commercial campus in West London; where phase 1 of the site is already under construction.
The existing building, a former gramophone works, wallpaper and paint factory, adjacent to the Grand Union canal will be extended on all sides with glulam framing and CLT floors totalling an additional 60,000sq ft.
The new massing will extend up to 4-storeys above the existing roof level and will be supported on the existing concrete frame and new piled foundations around the new perimeter.
The existing shallow building foundations have been justified for re-use without strengthening to support the new extension loads.
Old Gramophone Works is due to complete in 2020.
