12 March 2015: HCNW Services Tour of Kings Cross

Back to HCNW Updates

On a cool evening, two parties from HCNW were treated to an informative design history from Simon King of Arup, detailing the challenges and achievements of the project. On our walking tours, Simon the Lead Designer explained some of the station's history, the major site constraints, energy efficiency imperatives, about preserving the heritage not only of Cubitt's original structure, but also leaving traces of the changes over the years.


Despite running two groups, the "designer's cut" tour was over-subscribed and highly commended. HCNW is arranging a tour of the earlier St Pancras project in June 2015. We also hope to repeat the Kings Cross tour this year and thank Simon, Network Rail and Arup for these events.
