Paddington was initially opened to the public in 1854, and has been in almost continual use since then. Originally built by Brunel, it has not had a major renovation since then, and was in dire need of some refurbishment work.
The station was revamped in line with the governments’ ‘’Comprehensive Spending Review’’ of the Crossrail project.
Szerelmey were contracted to design, supply and install the hard landscaping package on the re-development of Paddington station.
This project was competitively tendered, during the time of the great recession. LJH won this project not only for our competitive price, but also because of our financial stability and second to none quality of product.
LJH were tasked with the complete execution of approximately 3,000m2 of granite setts to the external taxi rank. They were bedded using the Larsen streetscape product line.
Normal working, night working and weekend working were required in order to finish the project in time; and LJH’s workforce were more than happy to oblige. This, again, shows the depth of workforce that LJH have at their disposal.
This job was a good job to win, at a time of uncertainty. LJH, however, still showed the professional attitude and renowned quality that sets us apart from the rest.
