Hornsey and Three Bridges Depot
The Government awarded a contract to Siemens to supply and maintain trains on the Thameslink service. Siemens appointed VolkerFitzpatrick to construct new maintenance facilities at Hornsey and Three Bridges to a challenging budget and programme with Hyder and AALW as their design team
The buildings comprise maintenance facility buildings containing traincare halls, stores, workshops, welfare areas, depot control rooms and administrative offices. Separate buildings contain trainwashers, underfloor cleaning services and a wheel lathe.
We designed the external envelopes and interior finishes with integrated curtain walling to allow high levels of natural daylight resulting in bright and durable interiors that maximise the quality of the working environment over the life of the depots.
