BIRMINGHAM NEW STREET STATION - JOHN LEWIS REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT
26th January 2016

Hydra Capsule have carried out a multi-disciplined contract for the major redevelopment project at Birmingham New Street Station Project. The works commenced in September 2013 and has recently been decommissioned and completed.

The works involved designing, assisting structural consultant engineers and supplying numerous services (supply and fix) and products ranging from hydraulic jacks (200 tonnes), permanent flat jacks (920 tonnes), compression load cells, wheatstone strain-gauges, tilt senors, movement LVDTs to a bespoke remote and real-time load and structural monitoring system throughout the superstructure.

The system recorded relative structural movement and jacking loads throughout the construction phase works (from start to finish). In total, approximately 35 million raw data information was recorded, processed and displayed for key personnel to review.  This ensured that designed forces and load-paths were distributed through suitable supports without overloading and overstressing elements of the structure.
