Contractors could benefit from Google’s new UK headquarters’ development
Limited company contractors and freelancers could benefit from Google’s recent announcement last week, to create a brand new headquarters near King’s Cross.
The new Google building, which will be located to the north of the new concourse at King’s Cross station, will create thousands of new job opportunities for both contractors and permanent workers.
This could benefit IT contractors, as well as those in the construction industry, as building is set to take place in late 2013 and will be completed by 2016.
The commercial elements of the King’s Cross development are being brought forward together with new residential properties, to create a new and rapidly evolving place. This investment by Google is a further catalyst for the generation of around 35,000 jobs and the delivery of some 1,900 new homes at King’s Cross.
David Partridge, Director at Argent (King’s Cross) Ltd, “It is a great privilege to take forward what we believe is London’s largest office requirement in recent years. The team led by Nick Searl have done a brilliant job to get this over the line and are very excited by the opportunity to design and build a world-class, sustainable HQ for one of the world’s leading companies.
“This is clearly a major step in delivering our vision for King’s Cross and will provide a catalyst for developing the next phase of this unique 67 acre central London location.”
Commenting on the agreement, Sir David Clementi, Chairman of the King’s Cross Central Limited Partnership said, “We are absolutely delighted that Google will be building their new UK headquarters at King’s Cross.
“This is fantastic news for London, for Camden and of course for King’s Cross. Google is one of the world’s leading companies, a dynamic, innovative and forward thinking business. It fits perfectly with our vision of King’s Cross as a creative commercial centre for London.”
