Minimising the impact

Ensuring that we are a good neighbour

In building the development at King’s Cross, we want to minimise the impact of construction activities for everyone who lives, works, visits and passes through King’s Cross.

Details of how we manage the impact can be found in the King’s Cross Code of Construction Practice (CoCP) which you can download at the bottom of this page.

Keeping you informed

You can find details of any current construction notices, plus download the latest Construction Newsletter here. The newsletter details current and upcoming construction projects.

Being a Considerate Constructor

All construction sites within the development are registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) and will receive two visits per year by CCS Monitors.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme sets out the principles which must be adhered to in order to become a Considerate Constructor. These include:

Considerate – All work to be carried out with positive consideration to the needs of traders and businesses, site personnel, visitors and the general public.

Environment – Noise from construction operations and all other sources is to be kept to within the CoCP limits. Efforts should be made to select and use local resources wherever possible. Attention should be paid to waste management and the avoidance of pollution. Recycling and sustainability are encouraged.

Cleanliness – The site is to be kept clean and in good order. Safety barriers, lights and warning signs are to be maintained in a clean and safe condition. Surplus material must not be allowed to accumulate on site. Dirt and dust from construction operations should be kept within the CoCP guidelines.

Good Neighbour – General information regarding the scheme should be provided for all neighbours affected by the works. Full and regular communications with neighbours, including adjacent traders and businesses, regarding programming and site activities should be maintained throughout construction.

Respectful – Respectful and safe standards of dress should be maintained at all times. Lewd or derogatory behaviour and language should not be tolerated. Pride in the management and appearance of the site is to be shown at all times. Operatives should be instructed on how to deal with the public.

Safe – Construction operations and site vehicle movements are to be carried out with care and consideration for the safety of site personnel, visitors and the general public. No construction activity should be a security risk to others.

Responsible – Ensure that everyone associated with the site understands, implements and complies with this Code.
