The former BBC Television Centre in West London was transformed into a new high-spec mixed-use development with steel construction playing a leading role.

At the heart of the £400M project is Plot B, the iconic circular building that once contained the majority of the BBC’s studios. It was transformed into a major mixed-use development, including a business hub for the creative industries, a hotel, cinema, gym, restaurants and cafes, as well as 950-homes.

Working on behalf of main contractor Mace, Bourne Steel fabricated and installed 245t of structural steel to form the penthouses on top of Plot B. With more than 250 site-welded connections and very limited use of the tower cranes, Bourne utilized spider cranes for the installation of the redevelopment.

Construction work on the prestigious project began early and became fully occupied in 2017.
