Overview

Laing O’Rourke were appointed to design and build this four-storey deep basement and eight-storey concrete steel clad building and we were delighted to be awarded the contract for the external works and hard landscaping.

Our remit was to create the public realm areas adjacent to site boundaries and several iconic buildings such as The British library and St Pancras station. On-site for 32 weeks over the course of 2 years, our role involved numerous site visits, diverse phases and close working relationships with heads of logistics at various trade contractors.

The public landscape area included the construction of over 4000sqm of Yorkstone paving, associated build-ups, drainage, cladding, soft landscaping and infrastructure requirements on the ground floor that now includes a large public square facing St Pancras.
