Following the design development and procurement process over two years, Abbey Pynford Foundation Systems were recently awarded the complex underpinning of the Grade II listed 1865 London Underground station buildings.
The works were undertaken to support the main Station Facade to Farringdon Station for Newtwork Rail as part of the Thameslink upgrade project.
Abbey Pynford's expert in house design team used cutting edge finite element techniques to analyse the structure
|Scope of works:||Complex structural support & underpinning of Grade II Listed LUL station buildings|
