The Lighthouse Building is directly adjacent to Kings Cross Station. It is built directly on top of the cut-and-cover district and circle line underground railway lines. The noise levels from trains running beneath were extremely loud in the existing building and not suitable for any modern-day function.

The new owner wanted to turn the building into high class office space but also needed to retain the listed facade and distinctive lighthouse feature.

Our local branch worked with the design team to develop the isolation strategy to achieve acceptable internal noise levels whilst still supporting the non-isolated retained facade.
