Following demolition of the existing early-nineties structure earlier this year, the team has begun construction of the newly designed 57,000ft2 replacement.

The new office building will comprise a part eight storey and part nine storey concrete structure, featuring office space, a café, cycle storage, refuse stores, shower facilities and a single basement level.

The roof level will include a patio and seating area with an overall floor space of approx. 7,200m2.

VolkerFitzpatrick will install sheet and CFA piling, construct a concrete frame from the basement to level nine of the building and install curtain walling and cladding. The team will also construct a high specification reception area and an internal CAT A fit-out.

Stuart Deverill, managing director of VolkerFitzpatrick’s Building division, said: “This latest appointment builds upon our growing reputation and strength in delivering high quality, contemporary office environments in busy London locations. Our specialist ground engineering knowledge, combined with high quality construction and fit out capabilities, will ensure an attractive destination and workplace within the busy King’s Cross neighbourhood.”
