London Borough of Tower Hamlets

This project involved a design and build contract to create a high tech learning and library environment within the retail zone of the One Churchill Place, a 32 storey block in Canary Wharf.

Client:  London Borough of Tower Hamlets

Project:  Idea Store, Canary Wharf, London E14

Value: £1,250,000

Lead Consultant: Dobson White Boulcott

The works converted a small retail unit and otherwise unusable adjacent car parking space into a community facility as part of Tower Hamlets’ Idea Store programme.

The new space provided a library, as well as educational facilities in a bright, welcoming environment to encourage participation from the local community.

Close coordination with the Canary Wharf facilities management team ensured the smooth delivery of this challenging project.
