King's Cross

Carillion has been appointed to build three buildings worth more than £100m on Argent’s mammoth King’s Cross regeneration scheme.

The unnamed builds are situated in the north zone of the development and comprise design and construction of a large commercial building and two residential buildings, according to a statement issued by Carillion to the City this morning.

Construction will start next year, with completion scheduled for 2017.

Carillion chief executive Richard Howson said: “I am delighted that Carillion has been selected by Argent to design and construct these prestigious new buildings at King’s Cross. 

“This builds on the strong long-term relationship we have established with Argent that I believe reflects our reputation for high-standards of quality, value for money and sustainability.”
