With three buildings already open on the north part of the Campus and two more under construction, the final two plots, which form an important gateway into the White City Campus from Wood Lane, were awarded detailed planning approval in November 2018.
This approval was the result of a year-long public consultation with key stakeholders, including local residents and businesses. It will enable the remaining two plots – known as A and G – to be brought forward for development to form part of the innovation ecosystem at Imperial’s White City Campus.
Across the White City Campus north site, researchers and businesses are already helping to tackle major global challenges, from preventing the spread of disease to delivering new, sustainable sources of energy. The buildings on plots A and G are designed to support further work on such challenges.
One of these plots is set to be occupied by Imperial’s new School of Public Health, a state-of-the-art hub for health and wellbeing research, education and community engagement. An academic design team from Imperial is now working with architects Allies and Morison to oversee the design plans for the new building.
What will be built on the final plot is still under consideration, but the detailed application ensures that the College can respond flexibly depending on future needs.
