Case study: Providing EMC Services to Bond Street Station Upgrade

Instruction

Aktrion Transport, in early 2013, were instructed to provide Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) professional services to the Tier 1 contractor, Costain Laing O’Rourke, or CoLOR for short. CoLOR’s employer and end client was London Underground (LU).

Project Scope

The Project was the LU Bond Street Station upgrade. The Project scope involved a new ticket hall with an new entrance off Marylebone Lane on the north side of Oxford Street, London. There was also a new link passage connecting the LU station with the new Crossrail Station located also at Bond Street. Two new shafts were sunk to enable the construction of the new passageways, tunnels, passageway,  lift shafts and a new escalator barrel for the 2 new escalators, E9 and E10, designed, supplied and installed by Otis Ltd. The value of the project was circa £300 million.

Main Challenges

  •  The main challenges posed by the project were  the sheer amount of tunnelling works in a busy and confined space surrounded by expensive real estate such as  the local Embassies off Stratford Place, Grade 1 and 2 listed properties and of course Oxford Street, the UK’s busiest shopping district. The whole works area was monitored 24/7 for signs of minor deflection and movement within the surrounding structures.
  •  Another major challenge was the below ground rights retained by the neighbouring Embassies that meant tunnelling around them was necessary.
  •  From Aktrion Transport’s perspective, the challenges posed by a £300 million project were spread over a 7 seven year period ranging from concept design through to practical completion and handover to LU. This involved the coordination of EMC issues across a diverse array of multi-disciplinary organisations across a number of contractual boundaries – Electromagnetism does not respect contracts!

Collaboration – Oneteam

The key to the successful delivery was down to the good collaboration within CoLOR but also with the Employer, London Underground. The employer worked with CoLOR to assist with the close out of particular issues, whether design or during construction which meant sign-off towards the handover would become a formality.

Successful delivery of services

In the end Aktrion Transport delivered a new station to London Underground that was electromagnetically compatible and which demonstrated compliance with the legal and technical requirements for EMC. The new station was finally accepted into service by London Underground on Friday the 17th of November 2017. Aktrion Transport achieved EMC sign-off the day before station opening!

“Bond St Station will be the exemplar project on which all future LUL contracts are modelled”
