bysteel, a dst group company, was the company chosen for the façade cladding project at Kings Cross Quarter, a residential development with 118 luxury apartments and located in the centre of London, alongside the renowned King's Cross St Pancras Station.
The intervention by bysteel in this Regal Homes works’ contract, a major real estate promoter in London and the work of the architect Pollard Thomas Edwards, accounts for turnover exceeding 2.1 million Euros. It involves the design, manufacture and assembly of all exterior metal claddings and aluminium and glass façades.
It is the fourth bysteel work in the UK after having taken part in 2016 in the extension to Queen Mary University of London in Mile End, the construction of the Addlestone Town Center Development and The Gateway Building, an asset of Thames Valley Science Park owned by the University of Reading.
José Teixeira, the chairman of the Board of Directors of the dst group, believes that this works’ contract “represents the acknowledgement of the quality and capacity of implementation of bysteel on a market which is highly demanding both in terms of quality and safety. It also reflects the influence that the University of the Minho, particularly the Engineering School and the Economics and Management School, has on the dst group, especially as regards the enhanced know-how about how to face up to these new challenges”. This is why he stresses that it is “a source of pride and great motivation to see the excellence of our work being acknowledged internationally, all the more so in a luxury residential project located in one of the busiest areas of the English capital”.
