Internet giant Google has submitted plans for its new headquarters building at King’s Cross in London. 

Lendlease will be main contractor on the job which is expected to cost around £350m to deliver.

Plans went in to Camden Council for approval this week.

The planning application describes the scheme as a “7-11 storey building for use as offices with ancillary staff facilities including a cafe, gym, pool, Multi Use Games Area, events centre and landscaped roof garden.”

The Google HQ building, designed by Heatherwick Studios and BIG, in collaboration with BDP, will be home to 4,000 Googlers on completion.

Neil Martin, Manging Director of Lendlease’s Construction business in Europe, said: “With our global construction experience, we are confident this will be as distinctive as everything else Google does.”
