NG Bailey has won a contract from Vinci Construction UK to deliver the M&E and Information Communication Technology Services, for Network Rail’s redevelopment of King’s Cross Station.
The contract will see NG Bailey deliver the services in four parts. The first, through the installation of a new plant room, which will serve the entire station.
Secondly, work will start on the station’s new western concourse, which is three times the size of the current concourse area.
The third part of the project will see NG Bailey refurbish the adjoining western range office block, which as a Grade 1 Listed building will be home to 150 station employees.
The fourth part of the project is a new site wide customer information, security and communication installation, which includes CCTV cameras, customer information screens and customer help points.
NG Bailey chief executive Chris Newton said: “A contract of this nature demonstrates our strength in the marketplace, expertise in this sector and our capability to deliver first-class projects.”
King’s Cross is at the heart of the busiest transport interchange in the country.
Over 47 million people use the station every year, and this number is expected to rise by a further 10 million within a decade.
Over the next four years, King’s Cross will be transformed into a world class transport hub which can meet future demand and offer the best facilities for passengers.
