Camberwell Project Open for Business

Mountford Pigott is delighted to announce that the Big Yellow Self Storage Facility in Camberwell is open for business.

The development comprises a self-storage unit arranged over basement, ground and three upper floors with a gross area of 8,500m² as well as 2,250m² of flexi-office space designed to accommodate small businesses, start-ups and a new ‘Hub’ where office users can meet and collaborate over a coffee.

The main challenge for the design team was to integrate a large commercial warehouse building into a primarily residential street scene with an added complication that the adjacent residential building to the southeast is Grade II listed.  The solution was to push the warehouse building to the rear of the site and screen it with four-storey office accommodation along the southeast and southwest elevations. The offices front onto a new pedestrian route through the site designed to provide pedestrian linkage to future development at the rear of the site.

The yard – which is large enough to accommodate HGVs – is located under the storage building to shield the residential neighbours from noise and visual clutter.  The development achieved a BREEAM “Excellent” rating.

Holiday Inn Express in Cornwall

We are very pleased to announce the successful opening of the first Holiday Inn Express in Cornwall, at the Cornwall Services located at the Victoria Interchange junction on the A30 near Bodmin. Construction was challenging given the sites elevated and exposed position, however the hotel has opened to a very positive reception and is already trading extremely well. The scheme reinforces this major well established service area, which the practice completed a few years ago. Further phases of work are now planned for employment development on the adjoining sites.

Stratford-upon-Avon Town Centre Redevelopment Approved

Stratford-on-Avon Council have granted approval for the redevelopment of the Debenhams department store in the centre of the town.

The first phase will be an 80 bed hotel over a ground floor of retail & leisure units, with a further phase of 12 apartments over retail units to follow shortly. The scheme features sensitively designed facades to the High Street and Wood Street, and a new high quality approach along Taskers Way into our highly successful Bell Court scheme that anchors the Town Centre.

Planning was complex given the sensitivities of designing in a historic centre, being in a conservation area with part of the site occupied by listed buildings.
