Chiswick Park is a remarkable office development which will offer 1.8m sq. ft. of office space spread between twelve buildings, plus a restaurant, bar, mini supermarket, swimming pool and fitness centre. Park tenants include Technicolor, Discovery, CBS News and Singapore Airlines.


The Chiswick Park site is an urban island which has been completely transformed from its former use as a London bus works to a much sought after office location. Spectacular green parkland forms the heart of the site, including an open-air performance area, lake and extensive mature landscaping.


The project embodies the conviction of developer Stanhope that high quality can be achieved using standardised components and construction management procurement.


The aim was to produce a development that is highly distinctive, yet buildable within commercial constraints. The office buildings, designed by Richard Rogers contain flexible space that can be configured in open plan or cellular form. Central atria give views out onto the landscaped park and bring light into the heart of each building.


The energy strategy includes external aluminium louvres and retractable external fabric blinds (on earlier buildings) activated by light sensors which together shade 90 percent of the buildings' surfaces. This significant reduction of solar gain makes the use of a displacement ventilation system possible. Chiswick Park's energy efficient design together with good management has resulted in low running costs.


The Cylon BMS is installed in all of the buildings on site providing the most advanced technology to compliment this hi-tech office campus.


“The Cylon BMS provides me with the absolute reliability I need to manage the mission critical broadcasting centre. It gives me the control I need at my fingertips whether I am on or off-site.”
