Wates is putting up a new 11-storey office block at 12 Hammersmith Grove for Development Securities and SWIP Property Trust. It is the second and final phase of this office-led regeneration scheme. Wates finished a neighbouring building at 10 Hammersmith Grove last year.

Work on the new 167,000 sq ft building includes speculative Grade A office provision, retail space and additional public realm works next to Hammersmith tube station.

Designed by Flanagan Lawrence, 12 Hammersmith Grove (pictured below) is funded by SWIP Property Trust, part of Aberdeen Asset Management, and is being built on the site of a former car park.

The project is scheduled for completion in spring 2016 and is designed to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.
