King’s Gate, London

Location – Kings Gate
Client – Lead Lease

A luxury development comprising two new distinct parts – Kingsgate House and the Zig Zag building – one commercial and the other residential, constructed on this prestigious location in London’s busy Victoria area. Our clients’ project included a number of retail outlets, elegant apartments, studios and penthouses all combing renaissance Italian style and British refinement.

Working with the team at Lend Lease Construction Ltd, using a detailed scope of requirements, Squire Energy Ltd carried out two separate, large diameter connections in Victoria Street and in Palace Street, working alongside other utilities under the auspices of the City of Westminster, based in the adjoining City Hall.

This exceedingly busy area required focus, expert project management, considerable planning and coordination, given the limited free working areas, site traffic and the need to keep pedestrian and vehicular traffic flow unhindered due to the necessary groundworks on the highway.

The new gas infrastructure works included two new gas mains serving the retail outlets and energy centres, terminating within purpose built basement level gas meter rooms via welded steel pipework manifolds and numerous commercial primary gas meters and bespoke modules, all installed, operated and maintained by SEL under its MAM licence on behalf of the gas supplier.

This rewarding, challenging and complex project was completed ahead of programme, on budget and to the satisfaction of all concerned. We were extremely pleased and very proud to receive highly positive feedback post project completion from our customer.
