Description of King's Cross Station

King's Cross Station was designed by Lewis Cubitt in 1852. No longer able to meet the needs of modern day travel, Network Rail appointed JMP to prepare and execute a masterplan for redevelopment. The Historic
Team has been central to the process throughout, preparing a Conservation Management Plan at the outset to ensure that all stakeholders understood the building's history, recognised its significance and appreciated its vulnerabilities. The Plan's proposed policies, subsequently adopted by all stakeholders, guided the subsequent redevelopment ensuring that
the significant elements of the station are being conserved and enhanced.

The Historic Team's role has been wide ranging advising on historic building techniques, developing strategies for repair, ensuring effective discharge of all Listed Building Conditions and working closely with specialist artisans to conserve the historic fabric. Our knowledge coupled with our understanding of conservation theory and practice has enabled the project team to develop a strikingly innovative
response to Network Rail's requirements.

All the scaffolding has now been removed from the interior of the Western Concourse at King’s Cross Station, unveiling the dramatic space for the first time.

Commenting on this John McAslan said:

“It’s incredible to watch the reinvention of the station taking shape into a compelling piece of place-making for London. You can already see how the Western Concourse - Europe’s largest single span station structure and the heart of the development – reconnects this much-loved Victorian terminus to its context.

It’s immensely satisfying to see the project move forward at such pace and we look forward to celebrating the project’s completion in 2012 for the London Olympics.”
