The only surface station on the Central Line, Custom House Station is located one stop from Canary Wharf.
Client: Laing O’Rourke
Contract Value: £1,100,000
Whilst the main station structures were formed out of concrete there was a requirement for steel structures and bridges, which was awarded to DAM Structures due to our expertise in steel fabrication.
The steelwork received a multiple coat paint system which utilised thermal sprayed aluminium before protective coatings including fire protection were applied. All protective coatings were to a high architectural decorative finish.
The DLR Bridge was installed over a 28 hour weekend possession window where overhead high voltage lines added to the complexity of the installation requiring detailed logistical planning and strict safety vigilance.
