Queen Congratulates Faithful+Gould Consultant

Dale Potts
It was a proud moment for project manager David Tarbet last week as he was congratulated by the Queen for his involvement in the King’s Cross St. Pancras Station development at its unveiling on Tuesday 6th November.

David, an associate director at Faithful+Gould, has been involved with the project since 2006.

Faithful+Gould has played a dual role on the St Pancras project, having been appointed by London and Continental Stations & Property (LCSP) to project manage the Border Control Authority works and by Eurostar on their fit out works.

Faithful+Gould was also responsible for the Project Management, Cost Management and CDM Co-ordinator services for the fit out at Ebbsfleet International Station.

Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen offered her "warmest congratulations" to all those involved in the renovation as she officially opened a transformed St Pancras Station and new Channel Tunnel rail terminal for Eurostar.

Attended by over a thousand key people involved with the project, David was one of the select people the Queen spoke to about his company’s role.

On meeting the Queen, David comments; "St Pancras will certainly be a memorable highlight of my career, for both the prestige of the project and for meeting the Queen. St Pancras is a masterpiece in British construction and it is fitting that the Queen was the person to open it. It will be something to tell the grandchildren!"

On behalf of Faithful+Gould, David also met Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Ken Livingstone and Boris Johnston, who attended the launch.

St Pancras, which officially opened to the public on 14th November, is not only the new home for Eurostar, it will also house the new high-speed services to Kent, Midland Mainline, Thameslink and six Tube lines.
