Contractor appointed for St Pancras mixed-use scheme
BAM Construction has been appointed to construct a new BREEAM ‘Excellent’ mixed-use project near St Pancras Hospital.
Known as St Pancras Campus, it will contain offices, retail and residential elements and will transform an underutilised industrial estate that sits on a 1.2-acre self-contained island site
The various buildings will be linked together by a common basement and will be serviced by an internal street that runs through the main commercial building. The scheme will also introduce a new micro park to the neighbourhood.
Designed by Stirling-Prize winning architects Caruso St John, the development will make use of air source heat pumps, solar panels and green roofs. Utilising a high-performance façade together with on-site energy generation that feeds an all-electric system, the development will also help to support an increasingly decarbonised grid.
Rod Stiles, Director of BAM Construction’s London Region said: “This scheme extends northwards the transformation of Camden, with which BAM is intimately associated, and has that same regenerative feel.
“I am impressed by the way a strong collaborative approach has already been developed around the project, which is a very encouraging sign and an important factor in delivering any signature scheme of this scale and maximising the asset’s value.”
