London Bridge Redevelopment

London Bridge railway station, built in the 1830s, is one of the oldest stations in the world. It is located south-east of London Bridge on the River Thames, near Tooley Street in London. It is managed by Network Rail.

The scheme involved the design of an 8,000m2 concourse at street level, with a live railway running over the top on a viaduct, utilizing existing brick arches, and a new deck supported on columns located within the concourse. Several parts of the station were heritage-listed, and we incorporated these original features into the final design, while creating an attractive environment that allowed free passenger movement through the station from street to platform level.

Installation consisted of the following:

  • Façade area: 3,500m2
  • Glazing including, installation of aluminium angles for pressed feature capping
  • internal aluminium flashings prior glazing and after glazing using double side tape.
  • internal bottom SS cover flashings
  • external bottom fascia/skirt including support strap
  • external vertical finishing works pressed feature capping
  • bottom 5mm thick galv steel lug fixing onto SS support fixing
  • bottom SS-steel support angle – support structure for glass. Bond EPDM and dress down onto slab/steel-work below
  • top-hats including shimming, line and level
  • Installation of shot fixed stud bolts on every mullion (100mm between studs)
  • Logistics, Off-loading and installation of subcontract materials, back-loading of crates and stillages to be sent back to the factory
  • Final Clean both inside and outside prior hand over
