Approaching completion at King’s Cross W3

A special thanks to our incredible Lucia Berasaluce for leading the Haptic team on a site tour of King’s Cross W3. It was fantastic to get a sneak peek into the project’s later stages of construction as it steadily approaches completion.

King’s Cross W3 is a community building at the heart of the development at 180 York Way. Targeted to achieve a BREEAM excellent rating for its environmental performance, the structure and façades all made using various engineered timbers. The three storey building will host a combination of gym, cafe and creche facilities.

The final elements of Accoya timber cladding have now been installed and the project is on track for practical completion later this year. Not only does the hybrid timber structure and façade provided a low embodied carbon solution, it’s visually warm and tactile finishes will provide wellbeing benefits.
