Big names in contention to masterplan London's Old Oak redevelopment

Some of the biggest names in architecture and construction are in the running to masterplan the UK’s largest regeneration programme at Old Oak Common in west London.

Seven shortlisted teams have been issued with invitation to tender for the project, with Arup, Grimshaw, AECOM, Allies & Morrison and Hawkins Brown among the team leaders in contention.

Over 70 architecture, design, engineering, communication and landscaping firms have contributed to the competing design teams – with BIG, Wilkinson Eyre, Gustafson Porter, Agence Ter and Mott MacDonald just some of the studios invovled.

At the present time, Old Oak is 140 hectares of industrial and railway land. However, the opening of a super-hub interchange station for the High Speed 2 and Elizabeth rail networks by 2026 will catalyse the regeneration of the area. A new town will be created, with a number of culture and leisure facilities.

The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC), which is overseeing the project, has called for the competing design teams to present a “compelling, design-led spatial strategy alongside a clear delivery strategy to fully unlock this opportunity.”

OPDC hopes to appoint the masterplanning team early next year to commence work by February 2017.

The shortlisted teams are:

• AECOM (lead supplier) with team members - BIG, Bilfinger, GVA, Fluid, Maccreanor Lavington, PBA, Weston Williamson, Spacehub, Wilkinson Eyre, East

• Allies & Morrison (lead supplier) with team members - Diener & Diener, Weston Williamson, Muf, HHBR, Andersen Hunter Horn, Waterman Group, Steer Davies Gleave, Turner & Townsend, Fluid, Nathaniel Lichfield + Partners, Centre for London, Metephor

• Arup (lead supplier) with team members - KCAP, Gustafson Porter, S333, PAU, Turner + Townsend, People Friendly Design, London Communications Agency

• Farrells & Heatherwick Studio (lead supplier) with team members - Exterior Architecture, Arup, Arcadis, Bio Regional, ATK11, Steer Davies Gleave, Turleys, Volterra, GHD Rail Engineering, Colliers, Soundings, London Communications Agency, Flexeye, Siemens

• Grimshaw (lead supplier) with team members - FutureCity, LDA, QUOD, Amec Foster Wheeler, Urban Strategies, Rick Mather Architects, DK-CM, Soundings, Mott MacDonald, RLB, Steer Davies Gleave

• Hawkins Brown (lead supplier) with team members - Kathryn Firth, White, Metropolitan Workshop, Benedetti Architects, Grant Associates, Turley, Donald Insall Assocs, Pell Frischmann, Tyrens, Phil Jones Assocs, Turner + Townsend, Soundings, Social Life, Fourth Street

• Karakuesvic Carson Architects & 5th Studio (lead supplier) with team members - We Made That, Agence Ter, Alan Baxter, AKT11, Quod, Hoare Lea, Soundings, EC Harris/Arcadis
