Controlled Demolition: Documentary of King’s Cross Roof Demolition

The video above looks at the controlled demolition of the rather ugly green space deck canopy that had been obscuring the Grade I listed Victorian facade of King’s Cross Station since the 1970s. From the video description:

This film documents the project, showing how detailed planning and some unique solutions provided a safe and eventually successful controlled demolition of the structure.

I have a bit of a personal interest in this as I visited King’s Cross more than any other station during my Tube walks. Thus, I could see the progress unfold slowly overtime.
