Crossrail C271 & C272 Paddington Integrated Project Enabling Works

The Paddington Integrated Project (PIP) represents a close collaboration between Crossrail, London Underground, Network Rail and Transport for London to create an integrated station that offers a superior passenger experience with easy interchanges.

On C271, our scope of works involved significant structural dismantling of major concrete elements to enable relocation of taxi facilities from their existing locations and development of a new concourse for Crossrail.

On C272, our scope of works included the removal of old structures with the methods of removal heavily influenced by a “Heritage Deed Method Statement”.

During the 21 day blockade temporary works were installed to allow suspension of the concrete taxi ramp and to cut it into sections using track saw techniques for slabs and beams and wire saw techniques for the columns. The sections were removed during Engineering hours when trains were not operational. The major advantage of this controlled method is that if required, trains could come through the blockade at any time safely, which cannot be achieved with conventional demolition.
