David Morley Architects wins RIBA Award

The recently opened King's Cross Construction Skills Centre has won an RIBA Award. One of the first buildings to be erected at Kings Cross Central, it offers local people National Skills Academy accredited training and apprenticeships delivered through a partnership between Camden Council and Carillion Construction Training.

The building detailing is used as a ‘lesson in construction’ for the students: ceiling soffits are exposed, as are the building services; where possible wall systems are exposed; the plant room is caged; workshop and stair floors are exposed concrete and coated with an appropriate dust sealer.
