Refurbishment / Commercial Refurbishment

A new digital facility has been established in South West London.

A cutting-edge digital facility has been established in South West London, occupying the second and third floors of an iconic 1980s Post-Modern building near the River Thames. The central broadcast suite required a dedicated and controlled environment, and with the arrival of digital television, a new state-of-the-art broadcast facility was needed in West London.

To ensure maximum functionality, a proprietary glazing system was installed to provide full-height compartmentalization in each room. Sound attenuation was also incorporated in the form of bespoke acoustic baffles hung from the ceiling. This design feature not only enhances sound quality but also adds a unique aesthetic element to the facility.

Despite the complex design requirements, all services remained exposed, which was a key feature of the design. The coordination between the mechanical and electrical infrastructure was extensive to ensure seamless integration and functionality.

The new digital facility serves as an excellent example of how cutting-edge technology can be combined with innovative design to create a functional, aesthetic, and practical space. The state-of-the-art broadcast facility will undoubtedly serve as a key resource for the digital media industry, providing the latest tools and technologies to enhance the broadcasting experience. The iconic Post-Modern building near the River Thames has been given a new lease of life with the establishment of this cutting-edge digital facility, ensuring it remains a significant landmark in the city’s landscape.
