Client: London Underground
Location: Camden Town

CHALLENGE

  • Camden Town is frequently at capacity and crowding could become critical in the 2020’s
  • As part of the Future Stations Programme, a second ticket hall has been instructed to be built to accommodate more people

Solution

  • Complete a GPR and TOPO reconnaissance survey to PAS 128 standard to map the utilities in preparation for the second ticket hall
  • Using this data a report was developed which outlined the services directly affected whilst suggesting areas for enhanced ground investigations

Results and Benefits

  • Accurate map of existing utility infrastructure that allows a design for the second ticket hall to be finalised
  • Major utility assets affecting the site were identified and areas that required future reconnaissance works were suggested
  • The asset location search and site survey reduces the risk of striking unknown assets during construction
