Mildenhall-based English Architectural Glazing (EAG) has won a major contract to carry out work as part of the multi-million-pound regeneration of the former BBC Television Centre in London.

Stanhope plc has appointed EAG to provide a mix of aluminium curtain walling, windows, sliding doors and rain screen cladding.

The AHMM-designed scheme will see the iconic doughnut-shaped building, originally built in the 1960s, transformed into a mixed-use development, including a business hub for the creative industries, a hotel, a cinema, a gym and restaurants and cafes, as well as 950 homes.

Edward Whipp, pre-construction director of EAG, said: “We are excited to add this major project to our broad portfolio of recent contract wins in the London market and are delighted to be working with Stanhope plc on what will be the largest specialist trade contract we have undertaken.”
