RED Construction Group has been appointed to deliver Brent Cross Town’s temporary Visitor Pavilion, which is the first building to be delivered as part of the Brent Cross Town development.

RED Construction Group commenced work in late December on an 8,000 sq ft, 3-storey, temporary visitor centre on Claremont Way in Brent Cross to showcase Brent Cross Town’s masterplan and vision. The building is expected to be open to visitors by the end of 2021.

Designed by Moxon Architects, the building will capture and communicate the ambitious scale of Brent Cross Town, which will become a new park town for London and will establish a new standard for large-scale urban regeneration.

The Visitor Pavilion incorporates an exhibition space, flexible ground floor commercial space, as well as space available for community use.

It will be constructed by RED Construction as a low-carbon, innovative Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) superstructure which eliminates the need for a steel frame and will feature a timber-clad façade. The building will sit alongside a line-up of temporary community uses including the Exploratory Park play area that opened in August 2021.

Graham Sturge, Managing Director of RED Construction, said: “As RED Construction specialises in London developments, it is brilliant to be appointed to contribute our expertise to a scheme of this scale in the city, with an ambitious and highly sustainable vision. A pivotal space for all involved with Brent Cross Town, the Visitor Pavilion will also demonstrate RED’s in-depth knowledge of CLT, which has been implemented on previous projects such as Axtell House in Soho, London.”

Nick Searl, Partner of Argent Related and Joint-Lead for Brent Cross Town, commented: “Delivery of the Visitor Pavilion centre is an important early step in Brent Cross Town’s evolution and will provide a wonderful space in which to share our vision. We look forward to working with RED Construction to bring it to fruition, and for the Visitor Pavilion to begin telling the story of Brent Cross Town, a park town that will support the future of London.”
