Poole-based T.A.Colbourne has won a £680,000 contract for the Barley Mow Centre in Chiswick, West London.

Through a negotiated tender process, the specialist contractors have been appointed by main contractor Faithdean Plc to design, supply and fit the timber façade and rainscreen cladding for a 30,000 sq ft extension at the back of the centre.

Commenting on TAC’s appointment, Steve Vancliff, senior contract manager at Faithdean Plc said: “When I was reading the spec and drawing for the Barley Mow project only one company came to mind T.A.Colbourne, sometimes you just know who is right for the build.”

Following the demolition of the original steel frame shed just off of leafy Chiswick High Road, the contemporary building is being extended into a limited space, presenting an interesting challenge for the company to consider when planning works.

With more than 30 years’ experience within the construction industry, the TAC team, led by contracts manager Tim Bench and design manager Steve Reed, will begin works in August 2016 and are scheduled to complete early next year.

Commenting on the project, director of T.A.Colbourne Tom Colbourne says: “The planning stage of the Barley Mow Centre is already underway for our team. Due to the space constraints of the site, the building has been an interesting project to design. We are looking forward to creating an attractive and waterproof space to house the growing businesses in Chiswick.”

Designed to promote a shared working environment, the Barley Mow Centre has already received acclaim for the business connection opportunities it offers companies within the centre.
