Steelway provides solutions to a tunnel platform support
On a project requiring a unique solution to supporting a 4km concrete escape walkway situated inside the Piccadilly line extension to Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport, Steelway were called upon to design and manufacture such a bracket.
The design brief was for a bracket that could accommodate a concrete walkway taking into account deviations in the levels of the tunnel and facilitate the need for holding a pipe.
Utilising the vast experience within the companies technical department, the bracket design encompassed a 2 way adjustable arm allowing for tunnel variations to be accommodated and maintain loading conformance.
Extensive in house testing was carried out to ensure conformance whereby bespoke jigs were created to replicate site conditions and ensure that loading criteria could be met.
