WCN Editorial Team 1 Feb 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based construction firm Ardmore has secured a £155m contract from joint venture partners Hammersmith & Fulham Council and A2Dominion for West London’s major new mixed-use development, Hammersmith Civic Campus.

The scope of work under the contract involves refurbishment and extension of the existing Grade II-listed Town Hall building to offer more than 15,000m2 of office and public space.

It also includes construction of more than 10,000m2 of commercial space and 204 new homes.
Ardmore said that the refurbishment of the existing Town Hall will take place at the heart of the Civic Campus scheme.

The company is also creating an extra internal area of 4,500m2 contained by a trendy three-storey ‘Glass Box’ extension.

Ardmore also stated that the newly enclosed courtyard ensures a bonus of internal space for a glazed lift and link bridges, which opens the existing building and presents new connections.

The new Civic Campus is expected to become one of the most accessible series of buildings on the globe.

Ardmore managing director Cormac Byrne said: “To secure the project after extensive pre-construction negotiations, amidst a backdrop of significant uncertainty surrounding the COVID pandemic, underlines the determination of all parties to secure cost and delivery certainty.

“Having delivered some of London’s most complex listed-building refurbishment and residential regeneration projects, we were able to develop practical, cost-effective solutions to help unlock this challenging project.

“We’re looking forward to working closely with the Council, A2Dominion and local residents to deliver a truly landmark scheme that will help transform Hammersmith for generations to come.”
