Challenge

Network Rail's North Dulwich station in London needed replacements for the two Victorian staircases leading to and from each platform which were no longer safe for public use.

The replacements had to match the original drawings, but meet current design, RAL colour and H&S standards, including durability, slip resistance and fire protection.

Work undertaken

Working for BAM Nuttall, the project included design, manufacturing and fitting, working with German partners S&L.

In order to meet the installation time constraints, the staircases were fabricated off-site. Each one was made in three separate parts, lifted over the station with a 300-tonne crane, then joined together by a team of expert carpenters.

Testimonial

"North Dulwich Footbridge was a perfect example of collaboration between a designer, contractor and fabricator. Ecochoice were key to the successful delivery of the project providing both the contact with the German fabricator S&L and guiding them through the process. The continuous contact from Ecochoice was key for the successful delivery of the project and they did so with ease and professionalism. The quality of the workmanship that Schmees and Luhn executed was outstanding and perfectly replicated the structure of particular heritage value."
