Media company, UKTV has announced its intention to create a new headquarters for its 250 staff, as the company signs a lease for 32,500 sq. ft. of an ecologically-recognised development at 10 Hammersmith Grove, London. The fifteen year agreement was made with Development Securities PLC and the SWIP Property Trust through 10 Hammersmith Grove’s management agency, Jones Lang LaSalle.
UKTV will work collaboratively with PENSON, one of Europe’s leading interior design and architecture studios, who previously created award-winning spaces for Google, Jay-z’s ROCNation and London College of Fashion. Together the companies will tackle the brief to create a UKTV headquarters that is “built for innovation”.
10 Hammersmith Grove will be a ground-breaking facility for UKTV,” says UKTV Chief Executive, Darren Childs. “The new development increases the size of our current office and gives us the opportunity to create an inspirational working space fit for a broadcaster with a commitment to technology, imagination and the future of media. Technology will be at the heart of our progressive new workspace, and it will give everyone at UKTV the freedom to work creatively and collaboratively.
UKTV’s 250 employees are set to make 10 Hammersmith Grove their new home by July 2014.
