Kings Cross Gasholders, London

The Gasholders development is part of the wider King’s Cross redevelopment, one of the most exciting and largest redevelopments in London. The interlocking gasholder triplets were created and revised between 1860 and 1880. Now 150 years later, they are being re-designed to respond to the city’s ever-expanding population.

GBE Converge were engaged by one of our most established customers, SES Engineering (Engineering Services), to review the design for all the passive and active IT infrastructure, across the whole of the Gasholder development.

This included the systems for the landlords and common areas of the development. In addition, we were engaged to fully develop the IT schemes for each of the 145 residential apartments, to include the required infrastructure, connectivity and operation for the other building services IT reliant systems, such as: AMX Smart Home System; lighting and heating systems and the residential network.

This was a very complex engagement, as GBE Converge had to act as the central, common denominator for the integration of all the systems and applications from several different specialist suppliers and contractors.

GBE Converge have successfully completed the design, supply and installation of the complete IT infrastructure, for the highly specialised interior environments. The Gasholders are now well on their way to becoming a remarkable landmark in London’s ever-expanding skyline.
