Double the size of the southern ticket hall at Victoria Underground station as part of a £700m transformation, including a new north ticket hall (beneath a major road), with nine new escalators and seven new lifts.

The Brief 

  • Provide the electrical equipment (Wiring Accessories & Circuit Protection) for this and other parts of the project, capable of withstanding 24-7-365 continuous use in an environment.

  • Match the upgrade with aesthetically pleasing designs.

  • Although the area is very difficult to work in, ensure the station stays open throughout the project.
