Construction firm Interior Services Group (ISG) has completed the £38.8m Wood Lane Studios scheme in London, UK.

Developed by Voreda and Imperial College London, Wood Lane Studios was built on the site of the BBC’s former worldwide HQ site near White City.

The BREEAM Excellent standard building provides sustainable accommodation for students.

Wood Lane Studios features studio accommodation for 606 postgraduate students in four ten-storey blocks, which are connected at ground-floor level, alongside three timber-framed, three-storey residential buildings.

The concrete-frame student accommodation blocks feature different facade elements, including high-quality stone, aluminium and copper rainscreen cladding, with brick facing at ground level and glazed lift lobbies.

The development also features a reception and common areas, with each studio apartment housing a private bathroom, kitchenette, and communal and study areas.

Worker accommodation features sustainable elements including brickwork with cedar and copper rainscreen cladding, in addition to green and brown roofs.

ISG managing director of London Stuart Deverill said, "This scheme demonstrates how a creative approach to development can unlock the assets of education providers to deliver construction projects that are commercially viable, environmentally responsible and beneficial to the local economy."

The building is part of a plan to develop 1,330 unit GradPad London student accommodation to cater to London-wide postgraduate students.

Wood Lane Studios forms the first phase of the 108,000m² Imperial West regeneration project.

The second phase of the Imperial West regeneration project includes 87,900m² of development featuring academic buildings, technology transfer space, offices, residential buildings, a hotel, retail space and a public square.
