Spanwall specialists enhance the look of Liverpool Street Station


THE team of specialists at Spanwall are working on an ongoing project at Britain's third busiest station to produce bespoke soffit panels designed by Colorminium.

The ongoing project at 100 Liverpool Street, London, is taking place at this busy commuter station which serves around 64million passengers per year.

Liverpool Street has a reputation for its radical modernisation whilst preserving the best of its railway heritage and was designed to integrate with the growing London underground network.

Liverpool Street opened in 1874 as a replacement for Bishopsgate station.

Spanwall's client Colorminium is working with architect Hopkins and the main contractor, Sir Robert McAlpine, on behalf of British Land.

Spanwall are employed to produce the architectural soffit package to the retail areas and connection to Liverpool street station.

Using 4mm Aluminium as the preferred material, uniquely shaped panels are studded on the rear face to secure into the secret fix carrier system. PPC finish is RAL9010 thick gloss.

Philip West, of Spanwall, said:

“This is a job we successfully tendered for. The scope included making panels up to seven meters long which highlighted the need for extreme care to be taken while going through the manufacturing process.

“This is indeed another modern project which sees Spanwall showcasing their capabilities in what is to be the largest station of the London Underground network.”

The equipment being used for this project is the AXYZ CNC Router and the Stud Welding Machine.
