Kings College London

Project: The Quadrangle

Location: The Strand, London

Client: Kings College London

Main Contractor: Overbury

Value: £3,500,000

Duration: 16 months

Description: Complete refurbishment of The Quadrangle and South West Block, converting tired and disused parts of the KCL campus to high end labs, maker spaces and teaching areas.  Communal areas, corridors and toilets were upgraded throughout and the old vaults were transformed into seating areas where concealed lighting was used to highlight the arches.  A new concrete spiral staircase was formed which was illuminated by LED lighting fitted in the hand rail and a stretch ceiling was created in a basement corridor with LED boards installed to give the impression of natural daylight.
