Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering - Blackfriars Station

With Acknowledgement to Network Rail and Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering

In 2011 Racolin Ltd were approached by Balfour Beatty to design and manufacture an alternative to the existing design of concrete chamber walls at Blackfriars Station.

The original designs were very time consuming with each wall requiring a few days to build the shuttering, cast the wall and then strike the shuttering. With 70 walls to construct on a limited timescale, and on a high profile project in the heart of London, a much quicker GRP solution was offered by Racolin.

The GRP walls were made in our factory in Clevedon and were sent to site ready to install as soon as they were required. Each wall was unique, as not only did the dimensions from location to location vary, but the walls also had to allow for various types of ducts to pass through, at specific locations.

Racolin are proud to state, that all walls were delivered to site on or before schedule and that every wall fitted perfectly into its location!
