Abbey Wood Station

Project Details
  • Client

    London Borough of Bexley

Waterman has been commissioned by London Borough of Bexley to support the Council’s first stage Crossrail Complementary Measures (CCM) bid to TfL for their part funding towards the public realm improvements.

Structure and design
The design of the Public Realm will form a pivotal role in the redevelopment of the area and will improvements to soft and hard landscape, street lighting and structural improvements.

We’ve reviewed the outline proposals of the structural design, highway engineering, urban design and the crime prevention layout. This has allowed us to identify potential project risks and review the CDM elements (risk assessments).

CCM funding
We also reviewed network rail’s work packages, along with producing a detailed budget of project cost estimates. Preparation of a draft construction programme was an additional part of the commission, as well as fundamentally assisting in the preparation of the TfL funding documents for the CCM project.

This is the first part of the process of improvements for the public realm, with the scoping application and initial stage of the TfL CCM bid submitted in August 2014. This was followed by a conforming application in January 2015. Later, in April 2015, TfL confirmed their funding for the scheme.
