We’re so pleased to announce our site for TeamBuild 2014: Prestigious Eastbourne Terrace in Paddington, London W2. The project is a high-profile part-refurb world-class office development, immediately adjacent to one of the largest new crossrail stations, and backing onto wealthy Listed homes. The site offers all participants of the TeamBuild construction event the ideal base for their projects, challenging competitors with a constrained site, ambitious environmental/sustainability aspirations, complex adaptations of existing structure, challenging landscape and public realm proposals, and all for a major client you want to impress: Land Securities.
Site name: 10, 20 and 30 Eastbourne Terrace, Paddington, London W2
Site details: c. £100M Commercial Development including re-use of existing concrete frame and new services, landscaping, public realm and infrastructure.
Client: Land Securities. Our thanks to Land Securities and also to Wates, the site contractor and particularly Project Director Stephen Bradbury, for allowing us to work on this site for Teambuild 2014.

TeamBuild 2014 promises to be better than ever and our new TeamBuild site is the perfect accompaniment to the process. Chris Richards, CIOB and Trustee of Teambuild, said “Our visit to the site confirmed this as an excellent opportunity for regeneration and re-use in a historic part of London and directly above a new major transport node. The challenges in this unique project are phenomenal. It is great to see Wates operating so effectively on site and I can’t wait to take the challenge to our finalist teams in November.”
Take a look today and don’t forget to get your pre-qualification documents returned by the end of the month: we will be selecting the finalists on 2nd October, so you could be a part of Teambuild sooner than you think! Good luck to everyone – and we hope you’re as excited about Teambuild 2014 as we are!
The use of real data is deliberate and intended to provide a realistic set of spatial, environmental, political and statutory constraints, which should inform development proposals. Teams are reminded that they must not UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES imply to anyone that they are working on the real project. Candidates should use the information provided as a basis for making any necessary assumptions.
Teams are not expected to visit the site, and must not contact the client, developer, the local Council, or any of the consortium currently working on the real project. There will be no disadvantage over the finals weekend to teams that have never visited the site. Sufficient information relating to the site will be provided to finalist teams in advance of the competition weekend.
