Nottingham station - london

Howe Green's 7500 Series access covers are providing a high quality access solution at The Nottingham Hub, as part of the station's comprehensive enhancement project.

An alliance of Network Rail, East Midlands Trains, Nottingham City Council and Taylor Woodrow, The Hub is designed to increase capacity, improve performance and integrate transport options serving the city. It also incorporates the Nottingham Area Resignalling project and the NET (Nottingham Express Transit) tramway works.

Over 40 of Howe Green's heavy-duty 7500 Series stainless steel access covers and frames were installed within the station building and back of house by flooring specialists DMC Contracts Ltd. The resulting network of access points will ensure that essential drainage, mechanical and electrical services running under floor can be quickly and easily reached for routine or emergency servicing.

Suitable anywhere heavy loading is required – the 7500 Series access covers can accommodate a 5 tonne pressure from a pneumatic tyre – Howe Green's access panels were ideal for the busy Hub, with its annual footfall of 6.5 million and rising. As well as being highly durable, the panels also offered the best solution for cleanliness and safety. They are double sealed to prevent dirt and grease ingress and once set into the substrate, they sit flush with their surround guarding against the risk of slips and trips. Specially designed recessed lids also enable the panels to be tiled or accept other forms of hard floor finish, to match their surround perfectly. This enabled DMC to create an uninterrupted and continuous surface of Quiligotti Terrazzo floor tiles spanning 2000m2 within the station's south concourse and Grade II listed porte-cochère, which dates back to 1903 and features an elegant glazed roof.

With an industry reputation for excellent service, products and technical support, Howe Green has established itself as a leading producer of floor, wall and access panels over its 30-year history. The choice of Howe Green solutions for The Nottingham Hub project stands as testament to the company's ability to deliver solutions for infrastructure, which have included all major tube, DLR and overground installations in the UK as well as many key destinations worldwide.

“Howe Green's covers are excellent quality which makes a big difference on site,"

"It's easy to set tiles into the cover inlay which helps save time and they integrate with the Terrazzo flooring very well. A minimal show edge allows us to achieve the best possible aesthetic on the surface and provide a durable solution for accessing services underneath the floor."
