Morgan Sindall, one of the UK’s leading construction, infrastructure and design businesses, has been awarded a circa £9 million project to install a system to cool the platform areas at Green Park Tube Station.
The project is being undertaken for London Underground Limited and will involve the installation of eight air handling units on the Green Park Tube Station platforms. The units will be fed from a series of boreholes in Green Park. Once completed, the project will ensure that passengers have a more comfortable journey.
This is the first time that the installation of this type of system has been undertaken on the London Underground. In addition, the work is taking place on an accelerated timescale in order to meet the Summer deadline, when extra numbers of passengers are expected to use the underground network.
Jag Paddam, managing director of Infrastructure at Morgan Sindall, says: “We are delighted to have been awarded this project. Morgan Sindall has previously worked on similar Cooling the Tube projects for London Underground and we will be applying this past experience to ensure this project is completed on time and for the benefit of the travelling public.”
The design work is already underway and the project is due for completion in Summer 2012.
