Crossrail - London

Crossrail has made headlines as the £15bn project nears the halfway point of tunneling under London. In a recent interview with The Times, its chief executive and former T5 boss Andrew Wolstenholme commented that infrastructure expertise in this country has never been stronger and added, "There is increasing confidence in the reputation of the UK for delivering mega-projects on time, on cost, to a world-class standard."

We couldn't agree more with Mr. Wolstenholme. Our own involvement with Crossrail gains momentum and takes on new and unexpected directions almost daily as we work to provide solutions for easy access to essential building services at a number of different sites and associated installations, including those inside and outside Canary Wharf for example.

Forming part of the vista of Adams Place on the approach to Canary Wharf, there is a series of large linear brick planters under construction, each spanning over 4m square and featuring contemporary LED lighting. Working with the external stone contractor Szerelmey Ltd, we designed and manufactured a new Howe Green wall cover solution especially for the planters for reliable and stylish access to the lighting circuitry. Manufactured from 5 mm stainless steel, as opposed to 1.5 mm for the standard Waldor, these custom made covers are lockable for added security and feature a broad show edge for maximum aesthetic contrast with the smooth, glazed brick finish of the planters.

Our 1050 Series stainless steel floor access covers are also installed along the walkways of Adams Place, each with an additional load bearing specified to accommodate the latest in aerial fire fighting appliances for high rise buildings. Heading inside the station itself, even more Howe Green covers are to be found ensuring quick and easy access to water, power and data feeding the station. Over 30 of our 5000 series stainless steel floor access covers have been custom made for Canary Wharf's ticket hall and back of house, all with additional reinforcement to accept a 5-tonne point load.

Howe Green is perfectly placed to respond to the unique and evolving challenges major projects like Crossrail. Our continued and substantial investment in state-of-the art equipment and highly skilled staff has meant we can provide non-standard sizes and specifications and design bespoke solutions alongside our core ranges; something we believe has undoubtedly given us the competitive edge over the last 30 years in business and continues to set us apart.
