Ealing Studios reveals expansion plans

The new development will include the first Net Zero Carbon stage in the UK

London’s Ealing Studios has announced its plans to build a new state of the art 14,000 square foot stage, 10,000 square foot of new workshops and 35,000 square foot of additional offices have received permission to proceed from Ealing Council.

The development includes £20 million of local investment, said Ealing, and the new buildings will honour the current site’s Art Deco aesthetic of the original 1930’s Grade II listed sound stage.

The plan includes air source heat pumps and photovoltaic renewable technologies, meaning that it qualifies for the Net Zero Carbon Scheme.

Speaking about the plans for the site, Barnaby Thompson, partner at Ealing Studios, said: “Since the invention of film, Ealing Studios has been at the forefront of every new media revolution – and this is the next stage in our evolution, responding to a need for greater studio space as well as recognising the need to become a more sustainable industry.

“We thrilled to be celebrating our 120th birthday by building what we believe is the first Net Zero Carbon stage in the UK. We want the Studio to be a home for talent for generations to come.”
