This project focuses on the construction of a new five storey office block and amenity pavilion plus external works at the Power Road Studios in Chiswick.
The building itself is situated within the rear of an occupied development that provides business space in the form of small units and studio spaces. The site is also adjacent to a live railway line.
The project will develop studios 1 and 5, improve accessibility, rationalise the existing car park, enhance the visual coherence of the site campus, and provide modern facilities for cyclists and electric vehicles.
The Studio 5 building features a landmark 1,066 sq ft roof top terrace for staff and guests and with flexible floorplates for occupier fit out. Achieving an overall net gross efficiency of 88% for the building as a whole, Studio 5 will achieve a BREEAM Outstanding rating through monitoring and ensuring low embodied carbon, in line with Akoya ESG targets for whole life carbon, embodied carbon and operational energy intensity.
The amenity pavilion serves the whole of the Power Road Studios campus and includes cycle storage for 56 cycles, with 2 tier stands, lockers for folding bikes, nine showers rooms, plus an additional disabled changing area with a WC and shower. The building is cladded with modern vertical timber slats and has a green roof. To maintain the overall appearance of the site, the team undertook a landscaping package of 18 soft planting bays. In addition the team also constructed a new substation and running new power, water, telecoms and drainage routes, all whist maintaining access to the existing car park.
