Leading UK regeneration business Galliford Try Partnerships will be Ealing Council's development partner to regenerate its existing headquarters building Perceval House, and to create a new mixed-use scheme comprising 471 new homes, council offices and other community facilities.
This prestigious development, worth an estimated £275m, will feature 471 new homes, of which 50 per cent will be affordable; a new council headquarters building; a new library and customer services centre; new retail premises; and residential and commercial parking areas.
Working with internationally acclaimed architects Farrells, Galliford Try Partnerships’ innovative proposal seeks to enhance this major site by creatively relocating existing facilities to make better use of the space available.
Julian Bell, Leader of Ealing Council commented: “We are pleased to have picked Galliford Try Partnerships as our partner for this important development. Our offices are in a key town-centre location, but at the moment we aren’t making the best use of this important site.
“The exciting innovative proposal will deliver modern council headquarters, much needed affordable homes, and a brand new customer service centre and library.”
Stephen Teagle, Chief Executive of Galliford Try Partnerships said: “We are delighted to be working with Ealing Council on this fantastic regeneration project in the heart of Ealing. Our business has a strong track-record in mixed use developments across London and we look forward to working with the Council and our other partners to create high-quality homes and facilities for the local community.
“We will also be working closely with Galliford Try’s Building business which has extensive experience in the office sector, thereby bringing together all of the necessary expertise to deliver this landmark scheme.”
A development agreement is expected to be signed by November 2017. Following detailed design works and public consultation, the scheme should be going before the Council’s planning committee by March 2018. Once approved work will begin on site by September 2018 and it is estimated that the development will be completed by 2025.
