Kier Turns Planning Upside Down at Five Pancras Square
Kier Construction is part of the Kier Group, a leading property, residential, construction and services group which operates across a range of sectors including defence, education, housing, industrials, power, transport and utilities.
The Group employs over 24,000 people worldwide.
Kier Construction encompasses the group’s UK regional building, major projects, infrastructure and international operations.
Delivering any £68m development requires careful planning – but the build that James Carpenter of Kier Construction’s major projects business drove at Five Pancras Square, near King’s Cross in London, definitely required extra care.
This 14-storey mixed-use community, destined to house London Borough of Camden facilities and offices, required a rethink of the core building approach from the start.
It also experienced some significant difficulties thanks to the collapse of subcontractors responsible for both the steel frame Kier Turns Planning Upside Down at Five Pancras Square and the cladding.
This was in addition to a very complex core requirement, which included a 10-storey atrium with a cantilevered central stairway, and basement facilities including two swimming pools and a gymnasium.
