Natural Stone Supplied for Major Public Realm Regeneration Project at St Giles, London

BBS has supplied a two colour, flamed granite, natural stone paving mix as part of a £41m regeneration project around Tottenham Court Road station.

London Borough of Camden's regeneration project, in anticipation of the arrival of TCR Crossrail, has created pedestrian friendly spaces, widened footways, tree lined streets and protected cycle lanes. A new public square around the iconic Centre Point complex with shops, restaurants and bars around the perimeter has been created where residents, visitors and tourists will be able to relax and enjoy the vibrant surroundings of St Giles.

Working closely with MICA architects, Volker Highways and Camden Council, BBS provided a natural stone palette of contrasting granite from a mid-grey to black. The complex design, which meant every slab was a different size, has created sophisticated yet contemporary pedestrian spaces, reflecting the vision for this strategic public realm project.

BBS’s commitment to client satisfaction was demonstrated when major supply issues of the original black granite specification occurred early in the project. Without hesitation, BBS sourced a suitable alternative at no extra cost to the client and with no disruption to the agreed timetable.

This major regeneration project is due for completion in 2021.
