Redevelopment of Battersea Power Station


Battersea Power Station is in the process of being redeveloped to attract technological and creative business to let office space.

There is 1.25 million sq ft of potential office space in the old power station across its 42 acre grounds. Employees will begin moving into the offices towards the end of next year.

The interior offices have been designed by The Rockwell Group as well as Wilkinson Eyre, and they branch off from a central atrium with access to a rooftop garden. The Boiler House Lounge is a communal space for employees at the base of the glass atrium.

Chief executive of the Battersea Station Development Company,Rob Tincknell, stated: “The power station is at the heart of this new urban quarter for London, and offers businesses a very special opportunity to relocate.”

He added, “…we have designed its upper floors to be a power house of the future with state-of-the-art work and shared spaces to fuel imaginations.”

The Sir Giles Gilbert Scott area of the old power station is likely to be one of the most sought after areas of the building, where there will be 470,000 sq ft of work space.

The development is set for completion by 2019 in line with the Northern Line extension in 2020.
