BRIEF: London's St Pancras station


A complex moving operation was successfully completed last week at London's St Pancras station when the last section of a 9m tall Grade II listed Victorian waterpoint was placed into position at its new location. Specialist contractor Abbey Pynford had sliced the 9m tall brick structure into three sections horizontally by last Tuesday (NCE last week). Lifting contractor Jim Parkinson moved the two upper sections totalling 338t, 700m northwards to a recreated lower section on Wednesday and Thursday. Client for the £800,000 project is Heritage of London Trust Operations, and structural engineer is the Morton Partnership.
