Possibly

Camden have approved much taller schemes in KGC such as the Urbanest tower and Fenman House, but how could you explain Euston Tower and to an extent UCLH.

Euston Tower is a product of the 1960s when, surely, sightlines weren't drawn up? It would not be allowed today.

They have made that lakeside image of East Village unbelievably romantic! Turner or Theodore Rousseau would be proud!

Exactly... The 1960's was a time when idiotic Robert Moses wannabes ruled urban planning and how decisions that are unthinkable right now were made, such as the demolition of St. Pancras station being granted permission and the demolition of thousands of Victorian and Georgian terraces to build the Westway.
The only consolation now is that those people are dead and their legacies are being ripped apart.

St Giles Central near Centerpoint and Tottenham Court Road station. They also have offices in Victoria and 6 Pancras Square, one imagines that the recent proposal will allow for google to move their works from all their different site sites into one. The BBC have done this, amazon is about to this and Apple will be doing it in the near future.

Lendlease lands role on £1.5bn luxury resi scheme

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...y-resi-scheme/



Quote:
Lendlease has been appointed to provide design advice at the former St John’s Wood Barracks site in north west London.

A statement from developer Craigewan said: “On behalf of its client, St. John’s Wood Square Limited, Craigewan can confirm the appointment of Lendlease to provide advice during the detailed design phase of the development prior to the appointment of a main contractor.”

The 2.2ha site was the former home of the Royal Horse Artillery and will be transformed into luxury homes across eight blocks.

Construction work is scheduled to last for five-and-a-half years.

Two-year rebuild complete of Battersea chimneys

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...rsea-chimneys/

Quote:
Battersea Power Station’s four iconic chimneys have now been fully rebuilt using the same construction technique as when they were first erected.

Since the first pour in May 2015, nearly 25,000 wheelbarrow loads of concrete have been hand-poured into the chimneys that each stand 51 metres tall.

Rather than use a hose to pour the concrete, it was decided to replicate the original construction methods and 680 tonnes of concrete was lifted in a hoist to the top of the chimney, transferred into wheelbarrows and then hand poured into the structures.

The rings that can be seen around the new chimneys, and that could also be seen around the old ones, are formed by using a ‘Jump Form’ shuttering method.

Using steel and timber, the metal rings are filled with concrete then moved up and filled again. Overall, the hoist has travelled the equivalent of 21 miles, lifting the concrete to the eight workers waiting on boards high above the ground.
