Gatwick Airport Station Redevelopment

Gatwick Airport Rail Station Redevelopment was a major project undertaken to improve passenger congestion and access for passengers travelling on the London to Brighton routes.

The project involved the construction of a new 12 car platform on the east end of the existing platform, major structural alterations to platforms 5 and 6 and the concourse building above to allow the installation of new elevators and lifts shafts.

Volker Fitzpatrick appointed Kilnbridge to undertake major civil engineering and structural works packages as part of their main contract works worth over £50m.

Kilnbridge designed and installed major jacking systems to the concourse building to allow the cutting and removal of existing support members and the construction of new columns and beams in new locations, to facilitate the realignment and construction of new track.

The structural work package included the design, fabrication and installation of the new steel hub structure and platform canopies which provides an over track link between the new platform and the concourse and ticketing hall.
