Tony Gee has been carrying out a number of temporary works designs for the redevelopment of King’s Cross. These have included enclosed pedestrian access routes through the new western concourse building, piling platforms and checks on the many buried structures for construction plant loading.

The redevelopment works have also involved extensive modifications to the Western Range Building (WRB). As part of these, the southern wing ground floor structure has been remodelled to allow the free flow of passengers from the new western concourse to the platforms. The building was constructed as part of the original station and is Grade I listed, containing many period features that are to be preserved. Tony Gee was employed to undertake the Form A concept design for this and other areas of the WRB where sympathetic consideration of the existing structure was required.
