Truss sections being lifted into place

The two 1850s Victorian Coal Drops Yard buildings at King’s Cross, are in the process of being crowned with a bespoke sculptured steel roof - the image shows the ‘kissing point’ where the new roofs meet.  This high-profile renovation project is part of the Argent development, and has been designed by Heatherwick Studio and Arup, with BAM Construction as the Principal Contractor.

The project is due for completion in the last quarter of 2018.

BCAL have been part of the prestigious King's Cross redevelopment for many years, acting as CDM Co-ordinator and Principal Designer/Advisor on several projects.
