paddington Station is one of seven stations to be built in central london for
crossrail, the largest addition to london’s southeast rail network in 50 years.
located in the city of Westminster, the station consists of a cut-and-cover box
built under eastbourne Terrace and Departures road. The design is modern and
efficient yet evokes the heritage of the original station.
Weston Williamson was challenged to address numerous stakeholder
requirements while maintaining a strong architectural vision within tight
engineering constraints. collaboration was improved by using microStation,
Bentley Architecture, Structural modeler, and S TAAD.pro. project Wise
stored project data for on- and off-site access, and Bentley navigator ran
multidiscipline clash detection for markup and comment.
