Jacobs Webber-designed development will include new studios and refurbished office space

Morgan Sindall has won a multi-million pound contract to redeveloped the MTV studios at Camden lock in London, owned by Viacom International Media Networks UK.

The redevelopment includes creating studios and refurbishing 35,000ft2 of office space.

The canal side complex was originally designed by award winning architect Sir Terry Farrell in 1981.

Peter Jacobs, construction managing director of Morgan Sindall, said: “We welcome the opportunity to use our skills and capabilities at one of the best known buildings in north London.”

A colourful briese shading system is set to front the redevelopment, designed by architect Jacobs Webber.
