Opening of the King's Cross Construction Skills Centre
One of the first buildings to be erected at Kings Cross Central is a flagship Construction Skills Centre (CSC) designed by David Morley Architects, which will offer local people National Skills Academy accredited training and apprenticeships delivered through a partnership between Camden Council and Carillion Construction Training.
The building detailing is used as a ‘lesson in construction’ for the students: ceiling soffits are exposed, as are the building services; where possible wall systems are exposed; the plant room is caged; workshop and stair floors are exposed concrete and coated with an appropriate dust sealer.
David Morley Architects has a commitment to sustainable design and the CSC embodies this. Carbon savings are achieved by incorporating energy efficiency measures, low carbon technologies and on-site renewable energy technologies.
