BAM were awarded the contract to transform an underutilised 1.2 acre industrial estate into a high spec campus. The main building is a high-spec development offering a modern office space and shops.
We were chosen to deliver the full structural package for this building with central concrete core, precast concrete planks, metal decking and grating. This also included the fabrication of 2000 tonnes of structural steel with off-site intumescent coatings.
One of the reasons why steel was chosen was the need to maximise the floorplates with large column-free spaces. This resulted in an internal column grid pattern of 11.8m x 11.8m.
St Pancras Campus achieved a BREEAM excellent rating. Using a high-performance facade with onsite energy generation that feeds an all-electric system, supports an increasingly decarbonised grid.
The development exceeds the London Plan for renewable energy and reduction of carbon emissions. It also created employment opportunities, including training and apprenticeship schemes.
