Kier scoops £38m London Camden building

Published:  06 September, 2011

LONDON: Kier is in final negotiations to build a new civic building for Camden Council at King's Cross in London. The 17,000sq metre headquarters building will be used as offices for Camden Council along with two floors for a 25m swimming pool and library.

Camden Council and Argent-led King's Cross Central Partnership have signed a deal to go-ahead with St Pancras Square. This means that Kier Build is scheduled to start construction work on Three Pancras Square in early 2012, with completion due in summer 2014.

The deal means that four major buildings are now coming forward at Pancras Square, which sits in a prime location between St Pancras International and King's Cross stations.

Work is also due to start in 2012 on BNP Paribas Real Estate's new development at One Pancras Square. This new 31,500sq metre office building, designed for the developer BNP Paribas Real Estate by Wilmotte & Associates, will be submitted for reserved matters approval later this year and is due for delivery by end of 2014.

KCCLP is gearing up to start work on Two and Four Pancras Square later this year. The buildings already have planning approval.
