The redevelopment of Camden Town Hall Annexe saw the existing 1970s concrete-frame office building transformed into a 270-bed luxury boutique hotel: The Standard, London.
The complex 184,000sqft scheme included:
- part demolition, including the roof tops and plant rooms
- significant structural reconfiguration, including new lift cores and strengthening of the reinforced-concrete structure
- installation of a new three-storey steel frame and reinforced-concrete deck
- extension to eight storeys
- new architectural curtain walling and cladding system on the upper floors
- installation of a scenic, external glass lift from street level to the tenth-floor restaurant
Delivering the scheme, located on a tight, prime London site opposite St. Pancras International and King’s Cross stations, required expert logistical planning.
Completed in 2019, the building is set to achieve a BREEAM status of ‘Very Good’.
In July 2018, pupils from Argyle Primary School visited the site to see the works and find out how McLaren undertakes such a project. Details of the visit can be found here: Argyle Primary School Visit Camden Town Hall
