London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham
in–common projects began working with Shaw Corporation on the proposals for Imperial Studios in January 2020. The building is currently home to several unique small businesses needing bespoke space outside what is currently offered in the area. This includes furniture companies, events organisers and ice-cream makers. The proposals for Imperial Studios will see the delivery of a purpose-built space, catering for similar companies that struggle to find suitable office space elsewhere.
The consultation for this project has been small but focused. The project team, including the client, hand delivered invitations to the consultation event in March and knocked on the doors of those closest to the site to introduce themselves. The purpose of this was to raise awareness of the project, encourage people to the event and to start to build relationships.
The team held a consultation event at the start of March and more than 20 people attended over the course of two days. An application has since been submitted and engagement with residents has continued.
