Beckton Depot, East London
HDR | Hurley Palmer Flatt has worked closely with the depot staff to ensure they have as the same ergonomic features in terms of layout of equipment, specification of equipment between the existing depot pits and the new depot extension pits wherever possible. We ensured that the new lighting scheme in the depot extension will match as closely as possible the colour, intensity and feel to ensure there is no material difference between the new and existing sheds.
- A feasibility study was completed which resulted in a preferred solution working within the constraints of the existing depot boundaries
- Four heavy duty maintenance roads were to be extended 30m to allow three-car trains to be stabled and maintained.
- Originally HDR | Hurley Palmer Flatt were commissioned to design all new M&E Services within the depot extension. A further commission was gained to extend the overhead DC trolley and traction supplies.
- HDR | Hurley Palmer Flatt have successfully completed the AIP stage of design for all systems within our remit and are now awaiting an appointment for detailed design from the client.
