Boyer secures planning permission for office extension in Hammersmith and Fulham
Boyer has successfully secured planning permission for an extension of an existing office building in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham on behalf of General Projects.
The six-storey building was originally constructed as a state-of-the-art office building in the 1930s. The proposal will provide 3,600sqm of additional office floorspace to transform the building into a modern, high-quality space. The proposals retain much of the existing features of the building, with upgrades to enhance the building’s performance creating an attractive office environment for future occupants.
Taking a sensitive design approach, the development will provide affordable workspace and a ground floor café open to the public, creating a much needed sense of vitality and vibrancy along Hammersmith Road. Other improvements include public realm works, removal of car parking and use of the existing basement for cycle parking and shower/locker facilities.
The permission follows an extensive period of consultation, pre-application discussions with the Council and a meeting with its Design Review Panel. The proposals will modernise outdated office space, making optimal use of an existing building in a highly accessible location within Hammersmith, and provide an increase in the number of jobs in the local area.
