Tottenham Court Road (TCR) Station
SAS International is a British leader in metal ceilings and bespoke architectural metalwork. In their work on the refurbishment of TCR Station they have encountered a number of problems with measurements to design the metal ceiling panels.
GLA was asked to capture exact measurements of existing structure and all fittings that might affect the design process. The most challenging was the fact that the underground station was still in use while the survey was done. Therefore we worked closely together with SAS and London Underground to ensure all surveys were done accurately on time and with the least effect on transport traffic.
The outcome was a large model of the whole underground station including passageways, escalators, staircases and concourses. This model was used by SAS Int. to design brand new ceiling panels and successfully complete the project.
