Waldeck’s Civil and Structural Engineering team were given the conceptual designs for the roof and were tasked with digitally creating the detailed design for the ceilings. The bespoke pre-cast concrete ceiling consists of over 100 diamond-shaped concrete segments, which were pieced together on-site to create a dramatic lattice roof.
The 25m ceiling weighs over 360 tonnes and is suspended to create a memorable cathedral-like entrance to the station, inspired by the historic Hatton Garden jewellery quarter located opposite the station.
When it opened in December 2018 the Elizabeth line was set to carry over 200 million passengers per year, adding 10% capacity to central London’s rail network. The station links London’s key employment, leisure and business districts – Heathrow, West End and Canary Wharf which encouraged regeneration all the way across the capital.
