Initial concept design Grip Stage 5 working drawings of a New Major Interchange Station at Dartford, incorporating new retail, passenger and station staff administration facilities. In association with the scheme the existing car parking was also developed to increase the number of parking spaces and improve Disabled parking and its proximity to the new station.
Earlsfield Station is the busiest small station in London, experiencing huge volumes of passenger flow during peak hours.
Complete Refurbishment of Concourse Retail for Network Rail
Robinson Kenning & Gallagher were appointed by Balfour Beatty to provide Grip 4 to 8 multi-discipline design and technical site support for the complete refurbishment of the Station retail, including provision for a new 1,200m² mezzanine floor - the latter to facilitate a selection of dining outlets and customer seating areas.
Detailed design development included: consideration for shopper and passenger movement between the new mezzanine and existing Station facilities, the declutter of the Station concourse and the conversion of the existing piazza and food court areas.
Sited over the main Station concourse and busy LUL escalators, working alongside the live Station environment, the passenger safety and continuity of Station operations was paramount. In total fifteen new retail units were provided as part of the refurbishment scheme.
Project Value: £9m
OTHER ACCESS FOR ALL CASE STUDIES:
This original entrance to the station had become congested and the pedestrian flow of passenger through the subway was being restricted by the existing gateline and limited circulation space.
Entrance Improvements, New Concourse and Upgraded Passenger Facilities and Forecourt
A National Station Improvement Project (NSIP) for Network Rail on behalf of South West Trains (SSWT)
Robinson Kenning & Gallagher designed a new fully DDA compliant Station entrance, enlarged booking hall and new ticket office counters with the aim of providing a better interface with the adjacent platform areas. Other improvements included a new passenger lounge and toilet areas, dedicated customer information counter and improved circulation arrangements with the retail unit. New facilities were also designed for the TOC (Train Operating Company) train crew.
The existing Art Deco Station structures have been modified over the years and the ‘country’ platform facilities have been considerably compromised by more recent Station additions. RKG were appointed to provide Grip 3 and 4 Design Development. Feasibility options improved the poor access arrangements around the Station entrance and enhanced both passenger and retail amenities.
RKG completed Grip 5 Design and site support works for Osborne to a reduced construction programme. The new Station entrance works (the 250th NSIP Project) were well received and the station was re-opened by the Secretary of State for Transport.
