British Land’s Amphitheatre in Sheldon Square completes

August 2023

Situated on British Land’s Paddington Central campus in west London, the new Amphitheatre in Sheldon Square has been recently completed and is now open to the public.

The space has been reimagined to create a new, vibrant external space for work teams, families and friends to enjoy, and to provide a focal point for the community.

Working for British Land, Equals provided pre and post contract cost management services on the project with the works being procured on a design and build basis.

The works include new hard landscaping to the top and bottom walkways surrounding the amphitheatre, along with new retail frontage, with the amphitheatre remodelled to provide a more organic seating arrangement including a water feature, performance space, improved accessibility and inclusivity for all. The project has been developed with a focus on sustainability, using Earth Friendly Concrete to significantly reduce embodied carbon.

Equals worked closely with the client design team of Gillespie’s, Davies Maguire and Feix & Merlin with the works being delivered by 8build.
