Ardmore has been appointed by Knight Dragon to deliver the new Design District at the Greenwich Peninsula in south London.

The project to deliver a cluster of 16 artistically inspired commercial buildings is believed to be worth around £50m.

The buildings have been devised by a collection of eight separate design practices offering 13,000m2 of workspace for creative industries and 6,000m2 of education facilities and retail space.

The buildings comprise a mix of structural and architectural finishes.

The mix of external facades includes Terrazzo, Corten steel, polycarbonate and ETFE, in-situ concrete and corrugated aluminium cladding.

Structurally the buildings have been designed as a mix of traditional reinforced concrete, structural steel and cross laminated timber.

Ardmore’s work includes the completion of the shell and core and Cat A fit-out of each block, following the completion of the current substructure contract by VolkerFitzpatrick.

The project is expected to be completed in 2020.

The win is Ardmore’s fifth major contract on the Peninsula since 2009 where they have delivered over 900 residential and student accommodation units on four plots.

Knight Dragon Pre-Construction Director, Paul Symons, said: “Design District will provide a new creative destination for London on Greenwich Peninsula. A permanent new home for ideas, open to everyone.

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with Ardmore, who have been integral to the bringing this project to site, and their significant experience in delivering complex projects will be invaluable over the next two years.”

Patrick Byrne, Ardmore’s managing director added: “We are thrilled to have been awarded this key contract for Knight Dragon, which represents an exciting new phase of the Peninsula masterplan.

“Our appointment at the Design District not only builds on the vast experience of the Peninsula we have built up over nearly a decade, but is also testament to our ability to support our clients through the development stages of complex projects, identifying design and construction solutions whilst maximising value to arrive at an early fixed price

“We look forward to continuing our successful relationship with Knight Dragon to deliver new first-class commercial space for London.”
