The Engine Room, Battersea Power Station
Services Provided
Fit Out & Joinery Manufacture
A defining moment of our year was the delivery of IWG plc’s flagship co-working space in this iconic, grade II listed building. We were involved from inception, providing our knowledge to assist IWG through the legal process, collaborating on its business case and exploring value engineering options to ensure the viability of the scheme. Spanning three floors with both CAT A and CAT B office fit-out, the 42,000ft2 interior transformation was a masterclass in our innovative integrated joinery and fit-out approach. Refined FSC®-sourced materials, all chosen for their sustainable properties and finishes, were crafted into a versatile, multi-tier, DDA-accessible central platform, meeting booths, media walls, shelving, storage, panelling and a reception desk, all to complement the power station’s turbine halls and original façade. The success of The Engine Room was a united team effort with Cole Management, Craig Welch Design, Studio Sutton, BS;BP and Grassby Associates, all committed to delivering on time. Indeed, The Engine Room is more than just a fit-out; it is a testament to the power of collaboration, innovation, and unwavering dedication to craftsmanship.
