The Canary Wharf segment of the Crossrail project in London is progressing well ahead of schedule and the contract to fit-out the station has just been awarded.
Briggs and Forrester Engineering Services will be responsible for installing the mechanical, electrical and public health services at the facility, which is approximately the same size as One Canada Square - formerly London's tallest building - if it was laid on its side.
In March this year, the lowest level of the station was completed and tunnel boring machines will be moving in from next year. Fitting out will then take place ahead of a 2015 opening.
"The delivery of Crossrail Canary Wharf station continues to move ahead," said Michael Bryant, operations executive at Canary Wharf Contractors which is handling the development.
"Significant progress has been achieved to date, which has meant we could deliver the lowest level of the station to Crossrail five months ahead of schedule and within budget."
