Graham has been awarded a £25million contract for the design and build of the second phase of the Gramophone Works redevelopment in Kensal Rise, London.

The first phase, being developed by Resolution Property will create 85,000 square feet of contemporary workspace, in addition to communal and outside terraces.

The project will see the construction of a brand new 65,000 square foot commercial campus featuring contemporary workspaces across five floors, with some upper offices benefitting from a 6,500 square foot rooftop access space.

Graham will adapt and refurbish the existing Gramophone Works building to create the new commercial campus. A four-storey timber extension above the building will be installed with new brick and glazed façades added to all elevations.

Mechanical and engineering works include the installation of a new plant including a generator room and sub-station. Internally, new suspended ceiling lights and heating and cooling systems will be fitted throughout.

Mark Owen, Head of Development at Resolution Property, said: “This is a major office project that will further establish this part of West London as a growth area for new and existing businesses. “We are pleased to be working with Graham to deliver such a striking and innovative office scheme.”

Rob Joyce, Graham’s London office Director, added: “This new development will provide state-of-the-art business facilities and public spaces to support the needs and talents of the local community and workforce in Kensal Rise.

“Our aim is to create a modern, fit-for-purpose facility that offers a real ‘London Village’ community feel.”

The Gramophone Works scheme has been designed to meet the standards set out by the London Plan, as well as aiming to achieve BREEAM ‘Very Good’ certification. The project will also comply with ‘Secured by Design National Building Approval’ guidelines.

Works are due to commence and will take just over two years to complete.
