London’s historic Fish and Coal buildings to become Jamie Oliver pub and restaurant
BAM Construction secured the contract to refurbish London’s historic Fish and Coal buildings into a Jamie Oliver Group pub, restaurant and creative centre.
The contractor will convert the 150-year-old buildings, which follow the curve of the Regent’s Canal, into modern offices, studios and dining spaces under the deal with developer the King’s Cross Central Partnership, led by Argent.
Jamie Oliver Group will open a restaurant within the brick arches on the canal-level floor, and on the ground floor.
It will also open a pub in the Western end of the building, with a roof conservatory and an outdoor roof terrace, and base staff in offices and studios on the upper floors.
Local apprentices will be used from the on-site construction training programme.
BAM has just begun work on-site, with completion scheduled for spring 2016.
BAM construction director Mike Donegan said: “BAM is very pleased to continue its work on this landmark central London development. BAM is behind something like a dozen structures here.
“Our work here for Argent shows how trusted and successful we are at turning the most ambitious and high profile projects into reality for the UK’s leading developers.”
“Elsewhere in London, BAM has created corporate headquarters for UNISON, Burberry, Macmillan Books, Cancer Research UK, and Freshwater Group, and is behind signature buildings for clients such as the Natural History Museum, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Lords Cricket Ground, and Network Rail, BUPA and Camden Council, among many others.”
