Following the successful completion of the new entrance and gatehouse to the world famous Pinewood Studios, which was opened by the Queen last November, LIFE Build Solutions has been appointed to construct a new 42,000 sq ft office and processing facility for Pinewood Shepperton plc. The building will be the new UK headquarters for Technicolor Ltd. Technicolor Ltd, a subsidiary of Thomson S.A., is one of the world’s leading providers of creative and processing services to the worldwide film industry. A purpose built building of 42,000 sq ft entirely for Technicolor commenced with a ground breaking ceremony on 29th January 2008 with completion by the autumn of 2008. The building on the western boundary of Pinewood Studios will comprise three floors with a mix of commercial and office space designed to support the digital and film processing Technicolor undertakes in the UK.
This state of the art building will represent a significant commitment to the future of creative industries at Pinewood Studios. Ivan Dunleavy, Chief Executive, Pinewood Shepperton plc, said: “The signing of this agreement with Technicolor is especially pleasing, being not only a significant step forward for our master plan but further underlining the attractiveness of our studio sites as clusters for the creative industries for the future. We continue to make steady progress on our strategic aim of diversifying our business through growing our television and media park revenues.” Ken Adams, Director, LIFE Build Solutions Limited said: Repeat business with a happy client is what Life Build is all about.
