Project Story

Willmott Dixon Interiors delivered a combined refurbishment with new build elements to create the new Headquarters of the London Screen Academy.

Originally a “U” shape building, a new infill has been constructed to create film and TV studios within the new space with an amenities area at roof level. Approximately 87,000 square feet of space has been created with new state of the art technology provided in the studios. Heavy infrastructure was carried out in connection with this. Other teaching and administration space has been housed within the existing footprint of the building. In addition, a new substation has been built. There is an overall balance of scope of works between structural and fit out. The project was delivered to BREEAM Very Good level.

The project has been shortlisted for awards at Construction News Awards 2020 and Building Awards 2020
Project Outcomes
  • New building for specialist film school for 16-18 year olds
  • State of the art studios incorporating the latest technology
  • Stunning roof terrace created with cinema facilities
  • BIM Level 2 was implemented to support the construction, operation and maintenance stages
  • Use of digital construction provided transparency for the entire project team

Testimonials
“The brief has been executed really well, it’s been quite a challenge, certainly I think if you talk to the trust, they had a very specific vision for the project, that vision has been delivered very effectively within the space. The relationships have been very good and the result has been excellent, which is always the proof of the pudding. ”
