Situated in the north dock of the West India Quay, Canary Wharf’s Crossrail Place is a unique architectural triumph that houses a train station, retail space and a public garden.
Designed by Foster & Partners and constructed by Canary Wharf Contractors, the £500 million project’s distinctive 300 metre timber latice roof has lead to the building being likened to a ship moored in the docks.
Beneath it’s eye-catching facade lies Canary Wharf’s Crossrail station. Scheduled to open in 2018, it is one of seven new underground stations built to facilitate the Crossrail project. With a 256 metre long station box, it is also one of the largest facilities on the Crossrail network.
Allgood began work on the project in early 2015, with the task of providing an ironmongery package to match the high quality theme of the building. With a 25 year guarantee on all products, the Modric range was selected for the steel doors in order to provide a durable product that also formed a uniform appearance for the door.
With the public nature of the building, security was of paramount importance. The steel door package enabled access from public to private areas and therefore required higher security measures. Allgood installed high security solenoid redlocks that enable electronic synchronisation with access control.
