Brief

To modernise and restore the Grade One listed building providing a national and international terminal for the Channel Tunnel Rail Link.

Solution

Our team have completed their involvement in the £800 million restoration and modernisation programme at St Pancras International station, having supplied a range of precast concrete products to construct new and existing platforms.

The 141-year-old Grade I listed building opened by HM The Queen on November 14th 2007 is the new international terminal for High Speed 1 (HS1) housing Eurostar services to Brussels and Paris and in 2009 high-speed domestic services. HS1 project manager and designer, Rail Link Engineering specified in excess of 1,500 metres of  pre-cast concrete platform copings and supporting concrete sub copers in natural grey for main contractor CORBER to construct thirteen brand new platforms and refurbish six existing platforms.

Product features
Utilising our expertise in off-site solutions and pre-cast concrete, we manufactured the sub copers and copings in a series of ready to install pieces. This resulted in a quicker laying technique and gives a more uniform appearance along the length of the platform. The products feature a tactile surface to aid visually impaired passengers as well as an acid etched surface on exposed and front faces to improve slip resistance. 

We pre-painted the units with a white line to help passengers identify the edge of the platform which again reduced site preparation time. The flush finished surface will reduce wear and tear and provide a longer life before re-painting is necessary.
