After winning a place on the HS1 framework against major competition, Project7 have now completed their first project at St Pancras Station. With 50 million annual visitors to the Network Rail, London Underground and International train station, this took careful planning and meticulous research to determine the best times to undertake the various work elements.
Unit 7 was reduced to shell and core and extended ready for a new tenant. This was undertaken with great care and planning due to the Grade I listing of the station and the interfaces with the rail infrastructure and the public. The project had no adverse effects on the building’s spectacular original character. All existing heritage building materials were carefully removed during the reconfiguration and reused or placed in storage. The result - an extended retail unit and a reconfigured taxi lobby.
Safety was also a key part of this Project due to the high footfall associated with the station. The logistics of the works had to be carefully planned so that there was no disruption to station access and danger to the public. Project7 completed these works to an outstanding standard, complementing to the station’s charisma.
