:Refurbishment and relocation of the Grade II Listed Gasholder No. 8 has now been completed The Victorian gas holder was originally constructed in the 1850s and has been converted into a park with a circular lawn and a polished steel pavilion as part of the ongoing redevelopment of King's Cross. The architects added a shiny steel pavilion, which forms a continuous colonnade around a wide grass area in the centre of the cast-iron frame, forming a beautiful juxtaposition of old and new. Gasholder Park combines the industrial heritage of King's Cross with contemporary architecture to create a unique place. Argent, Arup, Shepleys and BAM Nuttal helped to develop a detailed methodology for the dismantling, repair and re-erection of this incredible structure. The guideframe now reclaims its place on the north London skyline, on a new site adjacent to the Regents Canal.
