Westfield Shopping Centre
Project title: Westfield Shopping Centre
Location: Shepherds Bush, West London
Duration: 3 Months
Europe’s biggest inner-city retail centre, Westfield London is a brand new £1.7bn shopping mall in Shepherd’s Bush, west London. Westfield’s new shopping centre covers 46 acres with 306 stores, 46 restaurants and 96 escalators. This is the largest retail development in Europe and has been the retail story of the past year, creating 7000 jobs and attracting 265 retail outlets from over 15 countries. Group SCS’s project team worked hard to ensure delivery against stringent programme deadlines and quality requirements.
In just three weeks, 22 uniVent smoke shaft systems were installed into the building’s stair cores, ensuring that the centre could open on time and that millions of customers were safe in the knowledge they would be shopping in safety. The UniVent range is proving increasingly popular with developers attracted to fast, simple and cost effective solutions. It is a complete solution for protected lobby ventilation, containing all component parts and controls. The modular system employs natural smoke ventilation methods to clear smoke ventilation methods to clear smoke from common escape routes and enable people to exit buildings safely in the event of a fire.
