Timber apartments top-out in London

Today's xsite is Robin...


The erection of the timber frame for an apartment development in Camden is now complete.  The project is for five apartments just five minutes walk from Kings Cross Station.  The narrow site is sandwiched between a 1930s apartments building and a secondary school, currently being redeveloped as part of the BSF programme (the steel frame on the pictures).

The scheme will be clad with a combination of brick-slips (London stock colour) and timber. Works are due to be completed later this summer.

FIRE!

Today's xsite is Anna...

We've had a very dramatic day in the Ouseburn. On popping out to get lunch from Byker Morrison's we were faced with towering black clouds of smoke from the top of the hill. Some brave members of the office ran towards the flames to get a better look while others retreated to the office to make a 'fire' themed playlist... The Scrap yard was a blaze all day but looks like it is finally under control...
