We worked on the upgrade and extension of existing structures at this tube and train station, where smart new facilities had been built for the Jubilee Line extension.
Our involvement included co-ordinating the requirements of several new tube line companies that had been devolved from London Underground. To minimize disruption, work was carried out at night and on the weekends.
The partially hollow District Line platform was replaced by a solid concrete pier; all plant was moved to a new plant room next to the re-paved ticketing area. We also added a lift from ticket hall to platforms.
A short cast iron platform canopy was replaced with an extended structure of precast concrete. Cleverly-engineered columns, each consisting of two concrete cores within one cladding sleeve, are positioned along the length of the platform. These support a concrete and glass canopy, which cantilevers off to each side.
Services are threaded up the columns and the platform is lit from beneath the canopy wings.
