C512 Whitechapel Crossrail Station

Whitechapel, London

2012 - Ongoing

Project Overview:

Alltask have been providing scaffolding and asbestos removal services throughout the Whitechapel Crossrail Station build. During the project Alltask and the JV have taken a collaborative approach to find solutions to the many access requirements. We have then been able to share our designs as best practice across the many other Crossrail projects we are involved with.

One example of the Alltask in-house design team providing VE was to build mobile system scaffold platforms to fit out escalator barrels with steel frames, halving build time and cost of traditional scaffold. Our solution was to use HAKI tracks with tie supports into the existing escalator barrel steps. The HAKI rig was then moved by two static winches at the top of the shaft to provide mobile access.
