Tileyard Studios

Tileyard Studios was founded in 2010 and has become established as a major creative business hub in music technology and entertainment. It provides space for artists, composers, producers  and editors operating throughout all media platforms and comprises over 110,000 sq ft of flexible office business space, supporting over 1200 jobs. It is one of London’s leading successes in creative arts regeneration. Opera are appointed by City & Provincial to support their vision to increase the office capacity on the estate by developing a site that has been assembled through a negotiated land swap with their neighbours, Big Yellow. The land swap involves the creation of a new piled boundary wall, which Opera led the negotiation of under a Collaboration Agreement. The Agreement requires detailed phasing of demolition of the existing buildings across the combined site, excavation and substructure including construction of the pule boundary wall, which is required before the new title plots are created. Opera’s role in the establishment of key engineering principles, using both parties engineers for inclusion in the Collaboration Agreement, required extensive negotiation.

Working in collaboration with Pilbrow + Partners, the brief is to create 140,000 sq ft of new build grade A office space, achieving BREEAM Excellent and full compliance with eh BCO Guide for Specification 2014. The site has a double basement ground floor retail activation to York Way and six upper office floors to CAT A. Opera were instrumental in the creation of additional value by constructing a double basement and minimising roof plant in order to create an additional floor of office space. Opera led the project team throughout feasibility and planning and were intimately involved with the development appraisal., including steering the team to optimise construction cost. Opera were also instrumental in driving value, engaging with existing occupiers on the site to determine value drivers, as well as engaging with commercial leasing agents on the office specification, entrance location and target occupiers.
