Project Summary

VEDA specified the processes and oversaw a major restoration project at King’s Cross Rail Station’s iconic clock tower and adjacent east and west flag towers. Owned by Network Rail (NR) but unused for a number of years, the station’s Grade I listed structures had fallen into a state of disrepair. The restoration was part of the mid-19th century-built station’s £550m redevelopment scheme.
