VolkerFitzpatrick won a contract worth £29m to build a seven-storey construction in London’s King’s Cross district. Under the waterside Tribeca development in the, the Apex is one of six mixed-use new builds, to form the heart of King’s Cross for developer Reef Group.
The current structure on St Pancras Way is done with the initial works of demolishing in June while VolkerFitzpatrick’s crew will separate the structural slab from its neighboring plot. Also the contractor will then construct the new seven-storey Apex building.
Reception, retail areas, and café will be accommodated in the ground level while levels one to six will be for laboratory or office space. The building will also include a basement level with bicycle and plant storage, changing facilities, and a roof with a plant enclosure to service the floors below. The project is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2023.
Alongside, levels one to four will have balconies overlooking Regent’s Canal and a stepped back façade at level five will allow for an accessible terrace space. VolkerFitzpatrick needs to collaborate with The Canal & River Trust throughout the works due to the site’s proximity to the water.
