Project Completion at London Bridge Station

Northern Escalator Installations LLP (NEILLP) has recently completed one of its largest prestige escalator installation projects on behalf of Kone PLC at London Bridge; the fourth busiest station in the country, which is part of a £6.5bn London Bridge redevelopment program. The station brings around 54 million passengers into the city each year.

Northern Escalator Installations LLP began the project in 2015 to install 26 new escalators, with the completion of the final two units in June 2017.

At peak times, more than 16,000 passengers an hour will travel down escalators from the platforms to this vast open area, the size of the pitch at Wembley stadium, connecting to new destinations.

London Bridge is a central London railway terminus and connected to London Underground station in Southwark, occupying a large area on three levels immediately south-east of London Bridge and 1.6 miles (2.6 km) east of Charing Cross.

The main line station is the oldest railway station in London fare zone 1 and one of the oldest in the world, having opened in 1836. It is one of two main line termini in London to the south of the River Thames, the other being Waterloo.

London Bridge Station will fully reopen in January 2018; with improved facilities and two-thirds more space for passengers.

Northern Escalator Installations LLP at Prestige Office Development Minster Court London EC3

Northern Escalator Installations LLP (NEILLP), the escalator installation and removal specialist, has recently completed a major project to remove sixteen escalators from the prestigious office development at Minster Court London EC3, on behalf of 777 Demolition Ltd.
The removal project included a range of specialty services undertaken by NEILLP, from feasibility and site surveys, to advising the customer prior to any works being carried out, consulting with builders and architects, producing detailed RAMS, supplying transportation and cranage for the escalators being removed, through to gaining authority for road closure and arranging traffic management where necessary.

A dedicated Project Manager was appointed at the beginning of the work to be our customer’s point of contact, throughout the whole of the removal operation.

The removal of the escalators took approximately four weeks from the start of the project to completion.
Minster Court is built on the site of what was an ancient convent around 1,000 years ago, which is the source of inspiration for much of the Post-Modern Gothic architectural building design.

Minster Court was the headquarters of the London Underwriting Centre, one of the main hubs of the financial services industry in London. At its peak the building handled 3500-4000 brokers a day

The full completion of the Minster Court refurbishment will see this iconic building transformed into modern open plan office space.

Northern Escalator Installations LLP - Proud Involvement in Crossrail at Paddington Underground Station
A Modern Take on a Victorian Icon

Northern Escalator Installations LLP is proud to be involved in the London Crossrail Underground project, and to have won the 1.5 million pound contract to install 15 escalators at the new Paddington station on behalf Otis Ltd, the world's largest manufacturer of people-moving products, including elevators, escalators and moving walkways.

The Crossrail Paddington Station is being built directly below Departures Road and Eastbourne Terrace and will offer a superior travelling experience with smoother interchanges and improved accessibility, easing congestion and providing space for future growth in passenger numbers.

Originally built in 1853, it is the design legacy of Isambard Kingdom Brunel and the architect Matthew Digby Wyatt. The new Paddington station is a modern take on a Victorian icon!

Built to the south of Brunel’s iconic 19th century station, the new station spans three levels with two entrances into the station via a new pedestrianised zone.

The station will take the form of an underground box measuring 260m long, 25m wide and 23m deep.

As passengers descend into the station via escalator or lift, the station box is lined with flush-jointed brick, perforated in places for acoustic absorption. Other materials are equally durable; glass, bronze and anodised aluminium, plus the stainless steel of the common components such as the escalators.

The construction of the station which started in October 2011 is due for completion during 2017.
