Project Value: £10.5m
Client/Contractor: Keepmoat (was Bramall Construction)
Duration: 5 Phases March 2009 to March 2011.
Redevelopment of the former Sharp Electronics European Distribution Centre for use as a film and media centre. The project involved the construction of music, film and green screen studio space, production offices and data centre facilities within three former warehouses and an office building on a 1.6 hectare site. The development provides media production facilities and office space from single desks to large scale film sets.
A key part of the scheme involved works to remove a majority of internal walls from a formerly cellular two storey loadbearing masonry office building to provide open plan digital production facility space while maintaining a sleek and minimal design. All new structure was contained within remaining wall lines and service zones so as to be completely non-intrusive
