Paddington Station

CDD Ltd were appointed to undertake various aspects of the RC Detailing on this project as well as 3D Reinforcement detailing of large column to beam connections to allow clash detection.

The Cross Rail Paddington Station was tol take the form of an underground box measuring 260m long, 25m wide and 23m deep, and located directly under Departures Road and Eastbourne Terrace. Construction would generate 160,000 cubic metres of excavation, 80,000 cubic metres of concrete and 15,000t of reinforcement. This wasn’t a large project for us but it was a new client so there’s always an interesting dynamic that a new working relationship brings – it’s great to combine the skills on both sides and see it all come to life.
