Stortford Interiors completes London Bridge Station fit-out project
Specialist architectural interior contractor, Stortford Interiors (UK) completes £4 million interior fit-out project for one of the UK’s biggest transport hubs, London Bridge Station.
Working for Main Contractor Costain, the broad scope of this large infrastructure project covers the fit-out of staff accommodation as well as retail areas and has seen Stortford Interiors deliver its ‘Interior Architectural Packaging Contracting (IAPC)’ offering, which includes in-house joinery division, Parkrose.
A wide product scope has been captured in the sub-contract package, most notably drywall, glass screens, Metsec and joinery, which includes door sets and washroom fit-outs. Initial contract works have been completed, with additional works to customer information points and retail areas expected to be completed by mid-2018.
The project is part of the wider redevelopment of London Bridge Station which will create a sizeably improved station with new platforms and a new concourse for its 56 million annual passengers. The redevelopment is tied into the government-sponsored Thameslink Programme, which aims to improve rail travel through central London at peak times as well as increase rail and passenger capacity at London Bridge Station by 40%.
Steve Harvey, Joinery Director of Parkrose, said: “The London Bridge Station redevelopment is a high profile one given that it’s a key part of the Thameslink Programme, so we’re pleased to be working with Costain after a rigorous pre-qualification process.”
“We worked closely with Costain throughout the tender to demonstrate our understanding of the scheme, performance requirements and design capabilities. The nature of the project has provided us with another opportunity to showcase our Interior Architectural Package Contracting and interface management expertise.”
