The Great Northern Hotel - Update
The concave façade will also be adapted to tie into the John McAslan and Partners’ designed semi-circular dome that will cover the new King’s Cross Station entrance and concourse.
Temporary bracing has been installed to stiffen up the building and the base of the brick walls have been dowelled and cast into the new basement slab giving more stability to the building’s foundations. Some concrete frames have been erected between the ground and first floor and the brickwork on the north elevation has been cleaned. Most of the hotel’s Victorian features including the staircases, sinks, fire places, timber floors, coving and mouldings are being retained.
All work is been undertaken by Wallis, part of the Kier Group.
