Great Western Studios

New artist studios on the bank of the Union Canal were developed in a thirteen-month period to accommodate artists and designers displaced by the Crossrail tunnelling programme. The building utilises an existing warehouse floor slab to minimize ground works, saving time and cost and reducing the carbon footprint of the development. A new steel frame founded on micropiles bored through the slab provides for a flexible layout and allows for future extension.
