The Details

A five-bay station building with bespoke external and internal finishes was required for Cheshunt Station.

Thurston supplied a 17.4m x 9.75m five-bay modular station building with celestia steel cladding to external walls, embossed aluminium feature panels, bright anodised feature beams and stainless steel tie wires and fixings.

The building also meets a number of key requirements, including:

  • anti-vandal windows
  • bi-parting public entrance doors with security locks
  • Double glazed powder-coated windows
  • External steel doors to plant with louvres
  • Staff office with vision panels
  • Steel fire door to corridor
  • Suspended ceiling to waiting room
  • Non-slip ceramic tiles to waiting room
  • Pre-finished ash internal doors
  • Manual attack three-tier ticket counter and customer enquiry window with cashguard tills

The Galvatite steel construction ensures the station will be low-maintenance with no rusting. Highly durable, the building will outlast timber framed alternatives, has a higher degree of security and is less susceptible to arson attack.

In addition, the flat-roof building is fully relocatable; galvatite steel is rich in zinc which has self-healing properties.
