Network Rail, John McAslan + Partners, Arup and Vinci have today unveiled the new Western Concourse roof at King’s Cross Station, London.
After the station’s £400M redevelopment is completed in 2012 the sweeping new concourse space, designed by John McAslan + Partners with Arup, will provide a gateway to London.
When the new concourse is complete the existing 1970s concourse will be removed, opening up the front of the station as the original architect intended in 1852, and creating the largest new public square in London in recent years.
Arup is providing a range of services for the redevelopment of King’s Cross Station, from acting as lead consultant for the Eastern Range building, Western Range building and Western Concourse roof, to multi-disciplinary engineering services, transport planning including pedestrian modelling, lighting design, IT and acoustic consultancy, visualisation and multi-disciplinary engineering design for King’s Cross Square.
