Steel forms new London public realm
More than 550t of structural steelwork is being erected by Fisher Engineering to form St Pancras Square, a new public realm that will include cafes, restaurants and a terraced water feature.
Also known as Zone B, St Pancras Square is part of the 67 acre Kings Cross development that will ultimately deliver up to 1,900 new homes, more than 300,000m2 of office space, 46,000m² of retail space, 20 new streets and 10 public spaces.
Seven new buildings, all with their own basements, but also sharing a common basement created by the steel podium, will surround St Pancras Square.
The steel podium, measuring 110m × 55m and covering approximately 3,500m², will initially be used to provide construction vehicle access to the adjacent construction sites before being converted into the realm.
