A £1bn transformation of Tottenham Court Road Station, the biggest transport investment in the West End for decades. 

Client:    BAM Ferrovial Kier JV
Contract Value:  £2,400,000

DAM structures were awarded the contract for the manufacturing, delivery and installation of the 1,100 tonnes of temporary propping.

Fabricated trusses that intersected the large circular hollow section (CHS) to allow for the future requirement for extensions to the propping, were provided.  These trusses were fabricated out of universal beams (UB) and rolled steel angle (RSA) sections which were required to intersect the CHS props.  To achieve this DAM had to create voids in the props to allow for the truss to pass through.

DAM worked closely with the site team to deliver the steelwork on a “just in time” basis and the installation was carried out over 24/7 site shifts so that site programme was achieved.   The steelwork had to be delivered to a very tight deadline, so it was essential that the fabrication work and site installation works were completed on time.
