Refurbishment of Eastern Barrel Roofs for Network Rail
Robinson Kenning & Gallagher acted as Heritage Consultants for the main Contractor of the re-roofing of the Eastern ‘Kent’ side concourse of Victoria Station, London.
RKG liaised with English Heritage and The City of Westminster over proposed scheme details, finishes and colours and prepared an extensive Listed Building Application along with supporting drawings and documents.
Listed Building Consent was obtained through Network Rail planners for the Grade II listed Station.
Working closely with the main Contractor RKG developed a detailed survey of the tied barrelled train shed roofs, covering detailed structural assessments and inspection together with a condition survey of both the interior and exterior fabric to the roof coverings.
Regular meetings were held with Planners, English Heritage representatives, and Stakeholders in order to relate the results of the structural investigations and to develop an acceptable proposed design for the refurbishment of the train shed roofs.
