A mixed-use development in central London, currently intended to incorporate a 600-seat theatre, c.194,000 square feet of office space and c.18,000 square feet of retail space.
The 12-storey scheme, the latest project being delivered as part of the 67-acre redevelopment of Lewis Cubitt Square, King’s Cross, will primarily consist of office accommodation over nine floors. It will also include a 600-seat theatre and bar. The ground floor on the south side will be dedicated to retail space, further expanding the shopping experience outward from the nearby Coal Drops Yard development, also delivered by the Group during our 2017 financial year.
The Group’s scope includes the design, fabrication and erection of a 3,600 tonne structural steel frame with precast package of internally exposed structural steelwork to an architectural standard finish. This will incorporate 20,000 square meters of hollow core flooring with exposed soffit including supporting steelwork, steel bracketry and Macalloy hangers to the mezzanine floors. Given much of the completed steel frame will also be left exposed, this requires the paint finish on all parts of the structure to be to a high decorative standard. The Group elected to utilise intumescent paint with an on-site top-coat applied. Additional Severfield products and services incorporated into the programme include deployment of ‘Seversafe’ edge protection, safety fans at two levels and the ‘Seversafe’ offload system.
