The firm will work alongside Pella Real Estate Partners and Christopher Smith Associates. 

The studios, which are some of the oldest in the world, have been making films since 1902. 

A new white Ibstock Engobe brick building has been designed to honour the distinctive Art Deco aesthetic of the original 1930s Grade II-listed stages that still exist at the studio. 

The project 

  • installation of a 14,000 sq ft stage (over 18 months) 
  • new workshops 
  • additional office space 
  • new reception, security, site hub  

The development will aim to make Ealing Studios the first net-zero carbon stage in the UK, built to BREEAM ‘outstanding’ certification. 

“The works will be transformational and will turn the venue into one of the most advanced and sustainable studios in the industry,” said Glencar Managing Director for London and South, Roy Jones. 

The deal comes after Glencar also secured refurbishment works at Soho Studios.
