ST. PANCRAS RENAISSANCE HOTEL – LONDON: PART OF MARRIOTT HOTELS
Sir John Betjeman called this Gothic treasure “too beautiful and too romantic to survive” in a world of tower blocks and concrete, but it has, emerging more beautiful than ever thanks to Atom Consultant’s modular addition to the fairy tale façade that Sir George Gilbert Scott fashioned. Working for Hemsec Panel Technologies, we developed the concept design and manufacturing drawings and schedules,for the Thru-Wall, an innovative new modular Structural Insulated Panels System and coordinated the whole process in BIM. We also identified all fixing points, brackets and fit to existing structure (just 300 mm away from the original St. Pancras Station) of these pre-fabricated panels, allowing the installation time to be cut down to just 3 days. Victorian splendour was seemlessly blended with this modern modular solution, to let St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel dazzle once again like it did back in 1873.
Based in Rainhill, Merseyside, Hemsec Panel Technologies are a leading composite insulated panel manufacturer who supplied the large format SIPs units for the St Pancras Renaissance hotel in London.
Hemsec liaise with James Lupton and the Atom team on a regular basis, seeking their structural expertise for use across the entire SIPs product range. The resulting data is typically used within our certification provided by Lucideon, a UKAS accredited construction product testing company and by the BBA for accredited Hemsec products.
This project in particular required a highly detailed design approach, handled directly by Atom Consultants using the latest BIM technologies to coordinate the installation between an existing steel frame and the new SIPs walling solution which had to fit together with precision.
Their knowledge of the structural properties Hemsec SIPs provide is unrivalled and mutually beneficial; we have great confidence in the design and coordination services they offer especially with the bespoke fast track solution on this project for which Hemsec would like to thank Atom Consultants for their work.

The Vauxhall Underground Station modernisation is part of Transport for London’s ongoing investment into London’s public transport network to support economic growth and employment opportunities.
The £36m project entailed reconfiguration of the station’s ticket hall to accommodate extra ticket gates and wide-aisle gates, as well as the refurbishment of the stations’ subways, ticket hall and stairs. The main part of the project was to make the access to the station step-free, enabling the station to handle 40% more passengers by installing a new shaft and lift between the ticket hall and platforms. A particular challenge was posed by the station remaining fully operational while the construction work took place between 2014 and 2016.read more
The London Borough of Islington had a requirement for a new sports hall to be used out-of-hours by the local community and it was to be built on the roof of and existing school- Winton Primary School.
To minimise disruption to this ‘live’ site, a modular approach was adopted. All components of the build were pre-fabricated, starting from the structural steel wall and roof panels and ending with the beautiful western red cedar clad external facade.read more
