McLaren Construction is starting on a new £10m self-storage centre for Big Yellow in Chiswick, West London.

BIG YELLOW CHISWICK CGI

The 75,000sq ft project is McLaren’s latest win for Big Yellow following a series of successful schemes across the country during the last decade.

McLaren is using the same team of professionals used on other Big Yellow projects during the 52 week construction period.

The team includes Mountford Pigott (Architects), Campbell Reith (Engineers) and Silcock Dawson (M&E Engineers).

Big Yellow, Chiswick, is being built on a landmark site adjacent to the raised section of the M4/A4 corridor, in a convenient location for Chiswick, Brentford, Isleworth, Kew, Hammersmith and Acton.

The prime location means a striking design has been drawn-up and novel engineering solutions found to fit the constraints of the site.

Nigel Hartley, Construction Director, Big Yellow  said: “The main challenge for the design was to create a high quality building fitting for this prominent location, the design is striking and it will generate considerable interest once the building is completed in May 2012.

“The main construction challenge will be to accommodate the building and its large service yard area on a tight site.

“The building foot print covers the whole site and the floor area has been achieved by suspending six upper floors from the roof structure which creates a clear yard for articulated vehicles to turn”.

McLaren managing director Phil Pringle said: “We are delighted to be working with Big Yellow on another project in the capital and look forward to meeting the high standards required of this project.”
