St. Pancras Station – London

Description of Project

The restoration of St. Pancras Station and its incorporation into the new Eurostar Rail Terminal was perhaps the major London infrastructure project of recent times. The iconic brick and stone terminus and Midland Hotel building, designed by George Gilbert Scott in 1866 came perilously close to demolition in the 1970s, but has now been restored to its full Victorian splendour. Inside the terminus, bomb damage and alterations to the facade meant that many sections of the string courses at impost level needed restoration, and this work was undertaken in the winter of 2009. The high quality of Victorian craftsmanship in all materials is quite remarkable, and English Heritage Conservation Officers were absolutely meticulous about ensuring all the new work came up to this standard.
