From the architect. Alison Brooks Architects has completed the ‘Wildspace’, a 4000 sq m warehouse refurbishment project in Rainham for client London Thames Gateway Development Corporation. From a derelict state ABA has cre- ated a 90m long ‘supershed’ containing five standalone business units with individual service yards, loading bay access and cores. Responding to both the scale of the building and its landscape setting at the edge of the Rainham marshes, the units are expressed as approximately 13m wide strips of vibrant colour visible from passing Eurostar trains. At the North East end the warehouse’s timber clad ‘wild west’ façade marks the eastern entrance to the Rainham marshes. The building is super insulated, creating a truly sustainable light industrial building, gaining BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating.

The completion of ABA’s Wildspace Warehouse development for LTGDC brings with it fresh opportunities for successful businesses to re-locate and grow in a unique location. Next door to Rainham station and opposite the recreational and nature conservation area of Rainham Marshes this opportunity creates the potential for businesses to thrive in a completely re-imagined sustainable industrial building.

ABA won the project through the LDA Framework Agreement in 2009, with work commencing on site September 2010 and completion of the building April of this year.
