Projects

Projects begin with a clear understanding of the client’s requirements from which we aim to produce high quality, fully co-ordinated engineering services solutions that permit safe and effective maintenance and the optimum use of energy.

We undertake projects at all work stages from inception through feasibility and design to implementation support and project management.

STANSTED AIRPORT RAILWAY STATION

Stansted Airport railway station consists of three platforms, 2no platforms terminate in a concrete station envelope, situated directly below the main terminal building. Platforms 1 and 3 terminate within the station building and platform 2 terminates outside the station building. All platforms have open sections to their London bound ends.

The existing platform lighting installation to both covered and open platform sections consisted of fluorescent louvered batten type luminaires installed end to end in continuous rows fixed to a suspended box section steel support system positioned above the platform edge. This creates a visual cavern effect having a dark void above the position of the luminaires and to the centre of the concourse. Being very noticeable from the main Airport Terminal directly above the station, which is light and airy.

Augustus Ham was commissioned for design GRIP Stages F01 to F03 for the rewire and relighting to the station platforms and concourse areas.

The Augustus Ham lighting design for the covered platforms and concourse area utilised the existing concrete columns, spaced at 10m (approx) centres throughout the covered station. General and emergency lighting was provided using LED area floodlights fixed to bespoke lighting support column brackets. Passenger guide way lighting was incorporated into the lighting scheme using blue LED wall washing up/down lighters to designated columns.

On completion of the new lighting installation the existing installation was stripped out, retaining the platform luminaire box section support system. Which was reused to support LED aesthetic strip lighting (white) running the length of the covered platforms (1&3).

CROSSRAIL C360 PACKAGE – ELEANOR STREET AND MILE END PARK SHAFT

Augustus Ham were commissioned as consulting engineers for the pre-construction RIBA Stage F design, consisting of the preparation of detailed information for construction of the mechanical, electrical, fire and public health (MEP) engineering services for the Crossrail C360 package consisting of ventilation and access shafts at Eleanor Street and Mile End Park in east London. The shafts will house ventilation and emergency exit facilities between Stratford and Liverpool Street stations. Both shafts will extend around 30 metres below ground.

The design consisted of producing a fully co-ordinated MEP design within a BIM 3D architectural model.

HAMMERSMITH DEPOT – AUTOMATIC TRAIN CONTROL (ATC) ENABLING WORKS

The London Underground Hammersmith Depot current state is stabling, maintenance and storage for C and S7 train stock. The Depots interim state will be stabling, maintenance and storage for S7 stock only. The Automatic Train Control (ATC) End state project will be a fully automated siding for stabling, train wash and casualty maintenance of S stock trains.

As a result of the ATC conversion project, all mechanical and electrical services in the Depot that related to maintenance functions are to be decommissioned and removed with mechanical and electrical services required for siding applications to be retained.

Augustus Ham was commissioned as consulting mechanical and electrical engineers by London Underground for the ATC Enabling Works contract. The contract consisted of the production of an Asset Decommissioning Report. The Report detailed all mechanical and electrical assets to be removed from the Depot. Augustus Ham carried out Depot surveys and produced engineering services elevation and plan drawings of each area of the Depot, all items of plant were indicated on the drawings and provided with an asset tag reference regardless of whether it was to be retained or stripped out, each drawing contained an asset schedule indicating the asset number, plant description and its status (retain/remove). All assets to be stripped out were hatched and indicated in red. The drawings cross referenced to the Asset Decommissioning Report which provided the scope of works for each Depot area, listing all assets to be moved. The Report cross referenced to a photographic log of each Depot area indicating each asset and its asset tag reference.

WATERLOO INTERNATIONAL STATION

In February 2017, Augustus Ham were appointed by Skanska Civils UK  for the production of the GRIP Stage 6+ design, consisting of the detailed design and installation information for the mechanical, electrical and public health services  in order to deliver and provide an operational station utilising the Waterloo International Terminal (WIT) platforms.

The WIT  Station building has been largely unused for the past ten years since Eurostar Services moved to St Pancras International Station.

The WIT station building consists of a Platform level (PL) providing platforms 20 to 24 inclusive, a Departures Level  referred to as Orchestra Pit Level (GF), an Arrivals Level  referred to as London Underground Level (B1) and a Car Park Level (B2). There is a roof spanning the platform area. Although not part of the WIT Building itself the WIT Mechanical and Public Health Services also occupy a significant part of the Victorian Arches extending below the rest of the station platforms and concourse areas. These include plantrooms containing boilers, pumps, air handling units, tanks, booster sets, sprinkler sets, control panels and the like to serve the operational station.

The appointment includes providing a co-located multi disciplined design team consisting of 19no engineers and CAD technicians in the Waterloo site office.
