Project Description: The Bond Street Station project involves the design and build of a new station for Crossrail in the heart of Mayfair, London. The project comprises of the construction of 2 no. 35m deep station boxes (250metres apart), using diaphragm walling and secant piling, followed by top-down methodology for the excavation and floor construction. The project also includes the complete design and installation of all M&E equipment, architectural finishing’s, lifts & escalators, and integration with the existing London Underground station and Crossrail’s Systemwide contracts through the connecting tunnels.
