Working with main contractor Carillion for client Kings Cross Central Limited Partnership, Lakesmere’s specialist façade team McMullen will install an extensive package that includes curtain walling, glazing and rooflights to Building P1, a new mixed-use development in King’s Cross.The new building will comprise a mixture of residential, commercial community and educational facilities including the incorporation of two schools and a nursery.
Lakesmere will also be utilising its BIM expertise following the team’s appointment to work with main contractor Wates and architects Marks Barfield to help create the eye-catching Greenwich Marketing Hub for the South London Greenwich Peninsular redevelopment project. Located opposite to the O2 Arena on the banks of the River Thames, the striking new building will be four-storeys high and will feature a striking envelope package of gold coloured Kalzip and Kalzip XT aluminium standing seam.
Lakesmere will commence work on both projects in Spring 2014.
The new contracts follow Lakesmere’s strategic expansion to maximise opportunities in the hi-rise, mixed-use and residential sectors in London and the South East, with the company establishing a dedicated office presence in London’s prestigious King William Street, overlooking London Bridge, and appointing a dedicated Business Development Director (London) to offer closer support to those clients operating in these areas.
