London race for the sky lifts existing buildings

The sprouting of tall buildings on London’s skyline is triggering new projects to create more architectural rooftop structures on existing buildings.

The latest proposed by architect Buckley Gray Yeoman will see a two-storey rooftop pavilion added to an eight-storey office building at 107-112 Leadenhall Street in the heart of the City of London’s tall buildings cluster.

The rooftop extension for client RBS REAM is based on the concept of the ‘fifth elevation.

The architects say this follows the principle that the view from adjacent tall buildings backing onto the scheme is as significant as conventional views from the street.



Its reconstituted stone pavilion scheme will sport a green sedum roof, improving views from a clutch of surrounding tall buildings, including the Gherkin and Cheesegrater.

Structural engineers for the project are Sinclair Johnston.

BAM tipped for £20m Aga Khan University student hall

King’s Cross goods yard developer Argent is set to award BAM Construction the job to build a student hall block for the Aga Khan University.

The project for the Aga Khan Foundation is expected to cost around £20m and will provide 198 student rooms within a 12-storey brick clad building at the vast London development site.

The student halls are the first of four planned building jobs for the Aga Khan Development Network, which BAM is now in the box seat to take.

This could be worth up to £150m in construction work.

A deal will come as some consolation for BAM after internet giant Google stalled progress on its vast HQ building, which the contractor was widely expected to win, but had not signed off.

A source told the Enquirer: “Originally Carillion was looking hard at the job, but it now seems BAM are set to build the student accommodation block.”

The spiritual leader of Ismaili Muslins also plans a university and separate buildings for both the Institute of Ismaili Studies and the Aga Khan Foundation.

Both institutions will also eventually move from their current location on Euston Road to the King’s Cross development as part of a wider programme of new buildings for the Aga Khan Development Network.

I love the updates, just wish there would be more of them. With plenty being built, it would be great if there was more photos.
