The BBC Television Centre – designed by Graham Dawbarn and built in 1960 – was the BBC’s first purpose built centre for television production. It’s situated four miles from central London at Shepherd’s Bush (also the location of BBC White City and BBC Worldwide), on a site used for the famous Franco-British Exhibition of 1908.
All features of the building are designed with television production in mind. A distinctive circular main block houses techinical areas and equipment together with facilities for artists and administration. Grouped around are studios linked by a covered walkway to a scenery block, allowing swift movement of scenery and props.
Amazon undertook the replacement of over 500 casement windows to various buildign including the television centre, and numerous secondary glazing projects with specialist acoustic sound proofing to the recording studios.
