Five Pancras Square, London

Plasterboard category

Camden Council’s new site at Five Pancras Square in King’s Cross, built by Kier Construction, consolidates a number of council premises into a single, more efficient site – not only helping to reduce the council’s running costs by over £500,000 per year, but also lowering its carbon footprint significantly. Client, contractor and local authority all collaborated closely on the project.

Five Pancras Square’s sustainability credentials are clearly evident. The project initially achieved a BREEAM score of 87% at design stage, but Kier’s procurement and input helped boost this to an Outstanding rating of 93.05%, the highest score awarded that year. The building’s passive design is without a doubt impressive, with its façade and internal atrium designed to maximise natural daylight with the overall aesthetic enhanced by use of Gyptone Line 6. Extensive use of Glasroc H Tilebacker was also used in and around the swimming pool areas.
