The Details

Thurston Building Systems won a contract to design, manufacture and install a 7 bay 2 storey temporary ticket office and 4 no. site cabins for the development of London Bridge station which at the time was one of the largest construction sites in Europe overlooked by the Shard. A major consideration of this contract was the delivery of the modules and cabins into a busy central London railway station with minimum disruption, careful planning and consultation was required with deliveries taking place overnight over 2 weekends to ensure the station was kept open. An added difficulty for the delivery and installation was that the modules had to be offloaded from the transport at road level, down a level in the station and along a platform that was just wide enough for the bays to fit, this was successfully done utilizing specialist air skates to manoeuvre the building and cabins into their desired location.

The fit out of the building was completed to the highest standard, Thurston Building Systems employed a specialist company to design, manufacture and install the ticket booth complete with 7 no. DDA compliant ticket windows incorporating in each a till, intercom and roller shutter. This was installed in the ground floor of the building which also house offices, locker and mess room, safe room, store and wc’s. The upper floor comprised of booking-on room, mess, kitchen, quiet area and more wc’s. The external of the building was clad using bespoke Duco cladding panels.
