About S4 Capella

Capella is a fourteen storey mixed use development consisting of 176 residential units (including 5 town houses) - a combination of open market and social housing, as well as retail spaces at ground level.

The build is located within the Kings Cross Estate, one of the largest and most sucessful redevelopments in London. Over the past 20 years this former industrial estate has undergone a regeneration programme that has transformed, refreshed and given a new lease of life to the area and encorporates a mix of park squares, galleries, restaurants, schools as well as a University. The uniqueness of the area has seen it allocated it's own, new postcode "N1C".  

Large parts of the build is produced off-site using Laing O'Rourke's innovative modern methods of construction (DfMA), incorporating pre-manufactured components delivered to site for assembly and installation. The use of DfMA improves productivity and reduces local community impacts.

The concrete frame is now complete and most of the of the facade panels are installed. Along the east elevation, balconies are fitted upto level nine and roofing works have commenced.

Internally the apartment fitout has started, with dry lining and enclosed bathroom Pods being installed across the units, as well as the installation of plant equipment within the basement area.   


Visitors to site will be given a short tour of the site as well as a presentation about Laing O'Rourke's DfMA approach and the contributions this innovative build approach is making to the built environment. Information on pathways into the industry and Laing O'Rourke's early talent programmes.
