Background

Designed to deliver a ‘statement’ façade and give a milestone for the redevelopment of West Hounslow, the building will incorporate a library, registrars offices, and drop-in help centre. It is designed to become a focal point for the local community.

At pre-construction stage, the site was a public car park bounded by roads and existing buildings on all sides with the new construction taking up the majority of the space on the site.

The new civic centre will include:
• 7 floors including ground floor (and a basement);
• Grade A office to accommodate space for 872 workstations;
• Public accessible ground floor reception and customer area;
• Public library and café;
• Council chamber with flexible use;
• 45 basement car park spaces;
• 110 bicycle parking spaces.

Our role

Stace has been employed as the Employer’s Agent with a supporting Cost Management role.

Our impact

Our Employers Agent team provide liaison between the client and the end occupier to integrate the council’s requirements into the building in the most cost-effective and programme neutral way possible. The management of the instruction process, variation cost controls, and notifications form a key part in ensuring the end user has a building adapted to their requirements.
