Ealing council appoints Willmott Dixon to £16.5m scheme

Willmott Dixon has been appointed by Ealing Council to a £16.5 million deal to refurbish its historic Acton Town Hall and Baths.

The newly-renovated building will house leisure, community and civic services.

Acton Town Hall was originally built at the start of the 20th century to serve Acton’s growing population. While retaining the Town Hall’s heritage, the project includes demolition of Acton’s former baths building which will be replaced by a new three-storey building housing a 25-metre swimming pool and a trainer pool, along with modern fitness and leisure facilities including a larger gym.

Part of the Town Hall will also be kept and refurbished to create a new library and council offices and its iconic frontage and the baths chimney, listed Grade II, will also be restored.

Designed by S&P Architects, the Willmott Dixon deal follows its recent regeneration of South Acton estate with Catalyst Housing.

Chris Tredget, managing director for Willmott Dixon in North London said: “We are delighted to be working with Ealing Council to regenerate another part of Acton by redeveloping the Town Hall.

“We have a long track record in Ealing and are looking forward to adding to that with the improved Acton Town Hall that will be a new focal point on main high street.”
