Carillion scoops latest King’s Cross contract

Carillion has won a 77-home contract for an intermediate-rent apartment project on the King’s Cross regeneration site, Construction News can reveal.

The contract is understood to be worth in the region of £15m.

Dolphin Square Foundation is acquiring the site from developer Argent to rent out.

A conditional deal was struck between DSF and Argent around a year ago, but the building contract has now been let and detailed planning permission granted.

Construction is due to start over summer, with completion expected by mid-2015.

Carillion also recently won a circa £20m contract with Argent to build a student accommodation block with 198 rooms for the Aga Khan Foundation.

Google last week unveiled its designs for a £650m HQ on the site, to be built by Bam Construct.
