Clapham Junction Train Station is one of the busiest Rail Stations in Europe, handling up to 50,000 passengers per day.
As part of improvements to the station we were involved with the canopies on the station platforms.
Ove Arup had carried out the initial glass staircase canopy to Platforms 11 and 12 and a further upgrade was then required. This was let on a design and building contractor for Platforms 11 and 12 canopies for Platforms 9 and 10 from South West Trains.
The contract was awarded to H A Marks contractors with ourselves carrying out the structural engineering works for the piled foundations and the canopies above. The work was then expanded to include the upgrade of the ticket hall and waiting rooms on the platforms.
The contractor was restricted to night working only with line closures to bring in materials and carry out the works on this very busy station.
We have subsequently carried out building refurbishment works at other stations with H A Marks including Ascot, Farnborough, Godalming and Walthamstow.
