NR Dulwich Staircase

Network Rail's North Dulwich station in London needed replacement 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. 

Working for BAM Nuttall, the project included design, manufacturing and fitting. With the help of our German parntners S&L it was successfully delivered on time and on budget to great satisfaction of the end client.

Off-site fabrication was the winning formula to deliver against the installation time constraints, which included a narrow window of railway line closure. Each staircase was made in three separate parts, lifted over the station with a 300ton crane and then joined together by a team of expert carpenters.
