This renovated building is a distinctive and beautiful landmark building that has achieved the required internal noise levels and delivered the customer a highly sought after office space after installation of top-class CDM solutions.
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.
CDM-UK worked with the design team to develop the isolation strategy to achieve acceptable internal noise levels whilst still supporting the non-isolated retained facade.
