Farringdon Station, Cross rail redevelopment

Structural and Civil Consultants worked for Bourne Engineering Ltd to provide steel to steel connection design for the new western ticket hall at Farringdon Station in central London.

Farringdon station is undergoing a major redevelopment to increase capacity, improve accessibility and upgrade interchanges as part of the building of Crossrail.

The western ticket hall at the corner of Farringdon Road and Cowcross Street will integrate with the Thameslink ticket hall. As part of the development, the new western and eastern ticket halls will also be connected by 250 metre-long underground platforms.

Philharmonie de Paris

 

This is the next world class innovative building from the pompidou Centre. The Philharmonie de Paris was one of the first buildings to be designed without grid lines, using only BIM. The prestigious building has been hailed by President of France, Francois Hollande as the greatest piece of civic architecture in the French capital for a quarter of a century. The €390 million concert hall, which opened to the public on the 14th January 2015, was designed by the Pritzker-prize winning architect Jean Nouvel, Hon. FAIA. It joins the other museums, conservatoires and theatres clustered in the Parc de la Villete to form the largest music complex in the world—as part of the ongoing redevelopment taking place in the 19th arondissement.
