Design by architects Aukett Fitzroy Robinson and PLP Architecture incorporates a mixture of housing and work space

Architects Aukett Fitzroy Robinson and PLP Architecture have submitted designs for the development of a new campus for Imperial College London on the site of the BBC’s former Wood Lane studios.

The 87,900 m2 site, now known as Imperial West,  would be mixed use with biomedical research facilities, housing, office space and a four star hotel.

The plans are currently being considered by the Hammersmith and Fulham council.

John Anderson, project director for Imperial West, said: “Imperial West will provide real and lasting benefits for the capital, helping to grow the London economy, and has the capacity to generate and sustain over 3,000 jobs.

“We have consulted widely with the planning authorities and local residents and this process has helped inform the basis of our planning application.”

The first phase of the site’s development, which will provide accommodation for 606 students, is under construction by contractor ISG and is expected to be completed in August 2012.
