Design and build project involving the construction and CAT A fit-out of two office blocks providing 362,000sqft of commercial accommodation, along with a multi-storey car park.
It is the first phase of a wider mixed-use development scheme situated in the Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames.
Block A is a 241,000sqft 9-storey with basement. Building A will have a strong architectural identity, with the form of the building continuing the curved profile of Eden Street.
Block B is a 121,000sqft 11 storey with basement. Building B is a second complementary office building that will front Brook Street, set back on the top floor providing further amenity space. The two offices are fully integrated and designed for long term flexibility. At ground level, the joint entrance off Brook Street creates a grand and welcoming approach whilst defining the main reception area. This will also reinforce the new public realm being created nearby. A connecting bridge at sixth floor level will create a seamless transition internally to the proposed social and communal spaces located on the sixth floor of Building A.
When completed, the buildings will be the new headquarters of the British-Dutch multi-national consumer goods company Unilever, bringing together employees from four other sites.
