Project Description

London Docklands, 2 Festoon Way, London. E16.

ExCeL London is a world class exhibition and conference venue and the client brief required a design which reflected this, while building on the versatility of the existing facilities.

Grimshaw's design for the Phase 02 extension provides 32,500 sq m of flat floor, column free exhibition space, with the potential to house a 5,000 seated convention venue. These Phase II developments will take ExCeL London to a total capacity of 1,000,000 sq ft of flexible space, a 50% increase on its current capacity. This will be complemented by a new 4,500 sq m bespoke facility, housing a breakout space and dedicated production kitchen, capable of catering for up to 10,000 guests at banquet.

The highly adaptable design also makes ExCeL the perfect choice for hosting a variety of events in 2012. ExCeL will be the venue for no less than seven Olympic and five Paralympic events, making it the second largest Olympic project currently on site.
