The Kings Place development in King’s Cross is a brand new cultural landmark offering an exciting range of mixed use facilities. There are many significant aspects to this building, but perhaps the most important is the new public concert hall, the first to be built in central London since the completion of the Barbican in 1982.

Wood Awards 2009 Structural Winner - Deal Pier
Deal developed as a beach-fronted seaport, serving sailboats that would hang about the mouth of the channel waiting for a fair wind. At times there could be a huge flotilla of wooden ships awaiting favourable conditions. Those sailors that were allowed would slip ashore to supply and please themselves in the town.
