Blackfriars Bourne Special Projects

Blackfriars Station

London, South Station


Market Sector: Rail

Client: Network Rail

Engineer: Cass Hayward

Main Contractor: Balfour Beatty

As part of the Blackfriars Station and Bridge Reconstruction Scheme Bourne Steel and Bourne Special Projects provided the structural steelwork for both the north and south stations alongside carrying out most of the enabling works, to allow the station to evolve as part of the build programme.

Bourne Special Projects were responsible for the south station including the pavilion building, a west and east entrance, flying staircase and a glazed steel lift structure.

Where possible, work was carried out during possession times to ensure minimal disruption to train operations and to significantly reduce the hazards presented by working in such an environment. Furthermore, a large proportion of the steelwork was modularised and manufactured off-site.
