The iconic Grade II* listed building and surrounding area is being brought back to life as one of the most exciting and innovative mixed use neighbourhoods in the world – a place to enjoy a unique blend of restaurants, shops, parks and cultural spaces.
The restoration will create 254 apartments within and above the power station. The apartments are sub-divided into the Switch House East, the Switch House West and the Boiler House Square, depending on the location.
The power station will be restored, generating clean energy by using renewable fuels. The design also incorporates a central atrium, which will provide full view of all the four chimneys from inside. The basement area of the power house will feature the plant room and a car park.
The Wi System has been specified on the proposed blockwork package to provide lateral support to masonry panels.
