Final phase of Olympia steel package underway
Forming one of the final steel-framed elements of the wider Olympia redevelopment scheme in west London, the G-Gate building is currently underway.
It is a complex structure which will accommodate events space (at first floor level), a theatre at its second to seventh floors, and three uppermost levels of office space.
Located on a plot previously used for car parking, the G-Gate will accommodate one of the largest new theatres to be built in London since the 1970s.
The structure’s steel beams and columns are set at three separate grid patterns for each of the different uses. Long-span transfer trusses, positioned second floor and eighth floor support and accommodate the change in column positions.
Once complete in 2025, the 14-acre Olympia project will create a new cultural hub. Centred around two retained exhibition halls, the hub will also include two hotels, a live music venue, restaurants, rehearsal spaces, a jazz club, retail units and offices.
