Neasden Depot - Multi-Disciplinary Infrastructure Designs
Disciplines: Civil / Structural, Electrical, Fire, LV & HV Power, Mechanical, Signalling
Neasden Depot is the largest depot on London Underground’s network. SRC Infrastructure undertook a number of inter-dependent design commissions at Neasden depot, including:
The complete new signalling & LV power cable routes (CRMS) throughout the depot
The new lighting & earthing arrangement on the main depot bridge
The Transformer Room and associated LVAC Switch room inside the existing Switch room complex.
The projects were programme-critical and had a number of challenges. Access for survey and for installation was significantly constrained as few possessions were available.
SRC Infrastructure developed and achieved approval of an innovative passive ventilation system that had not been used on TfL infrastructure before. This required approval by external regulatory bodies.
