This contract was to install a raised GRP walkway within a high voltage room below Stepney Green Park, as part of the C360 ventilation works on Crossrail.

The walkway installation was logistically challenging with extreme space constraints.

VGC’s project team used our client’s concept design to produce the AFC design drawing in collaboration with partner Dura Composites. The team used a flexible design to accommodate existing equipment and cable runs.
