Willmott Dixon has landed a £10m contract with the Low Carbon Workplace to refurbish a 1940s office in Hammersmith with energy efficiency as the focus.
The contractor will completely refit the 63,000 sq ft office space over five storey at Grove House in Hammersmith. The refit includes new lifts, roof refurbishment, replacing M&E services and creating a new glazed atrium within the existing courtyard.
The Low Carbon Workplace is a partnership between the Carbon Trust, Stanhope and fund manager Threadneedle, to design, build and manage contemporary offices for companies with energy-efficient operation committments.
Willmott Dixon will refurbish the office to a CAT A level, working with Bennett Architects, Akera Engineers and Arup. The project is scheduled to complete in 2013 with the intention that the work will lower energy usage by as much as 50 per cent at high utilisation levels.
Willmott Dixon is currently building the UK’s largest Passivhaus residential project in Camden, the first zero carbon ‘in use’ school in Islington, and London’s first large housing development to reach Code for Sustainable Homes level six, in Staines Road, Hounslow.
