National law firm Irwin Mitchell's Construction Department is advising a joint venture between Delancey and Infinity SDC:  Here East.  The 1.2m sq. ft project will transform the former Press and Broadcast Centres on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park into a unique cluster, providing a range of versatile spaces for the UK’s flourishing creative and digital industries.
 
Here East will be a dedicated place for start-ups and established companies to co-exist and collaborate. It will feature a new campus for Loughborough University, alongside Hackney Community College and one of Europe’s largest and most efficient data centres. The development will include shared workspaces, a public square, a landscaped canal side and artisanal cafes, shops and restaurants. Here East is already home to BT Sport, who launched its new sports channels in 2013.

The joint venture has recently entered into a significant construction contract with Laing O’Rourke to deliver the revamped buildings. 

David Parton, Partner and Head of Construction in London at Irwin Mitchell, is leading the team, assisted by Associate Vanessa Greaves.
