The Eastern Goods Yard scheme transforms much of the historic Grade II listed Granary Complex north of King's Cross and St Pancras International stations.
The planned major university campus accommodates 6,500 students and staff through a combination of refurbishment and new build. An extensive area of public realm will be created incorporating new utilities, a new bridge across the Regent's Canal, hard and soft landscaping and refurbishment of the canal towpath.
This is the first phase of a large development on a complex brownfield site, requiring a holistic view of the inter-relationships with all other proposals and an overall understanding of wider area impacts, access, infrastructure requirements, place making and public realm.
We developed the earthworks and remediation strategy for the site to deal with plot development earthworks and resolution of localised contamination in existing made ground arising from historic uses of the site.
Our design works have been extended to provide a site-wide overview of utilities strategy for the wider development and site-wide highways support in negotiations towards agreements with the highway authorities.
We provided bridge, civil, infrastructure, geo-environmental engineering and utility services.
