Development Completed

The VolkerFitzpatrick team has recently completed the 57,000 sq ft Rolling Stock Yard office building in King’s Cross on behalf of Newmark Properties LLP.

VolkerFitzpatrick completed the construction of a part 8-storey and part 9-storey concrete structure, created by the architects and interior designers at Squire & Partners. Works had started in June 2018.

The building features office space, a café, cycle storage, shower facilities and a single basement level. The team installed sheet and CFA piling, constructed an exposed concrete frame from the basement to level nine of the building, and installed a high specification curtain walling and cladding system. The project also included the execution of a high specification reception area and an internal CAT A fit-out.

Set on the corner of a busy road in King’s Cross London, the development presented the team with many challenges. To manage the flow of heavy goods vehicles, VolkerFitzpatrick successfully coordinated deliveries with local yards and liaised with lots of small local businesses.

To keep pedestrians safe throughout the build, complex health and safety challenges were overcame by manoeuvring the site entrance in relation to the works on different elevations.

VolkerFitzpatrick created a show floor ahead of schedule to help the marketing of the building.

The building holds a Platinum Wired award.

Stuart Deverill, managing director of VolkerFitzpatrick's Building division, commented: “Under challenging circumstances, both in terms of Covid-19 and more generally the busy location, the team worked tirelessly to execute this project. Accomplishing this sophisticated office space in King’s Cross demonstrates our specialist ground engineering knowledge, our capabilities for high-quality construction and fit out, and our ability to nurture relationships with local businesses and communities.”
