Sunderland Station

Eltherington was involved in the construction of the Sunderland Station by providing column casings for the underground train station. The project was challenging as it had to be completed on a tight schedule while meeting fire and DDA regulations.

However, Eltherington worked closely with the contractors and Rimex Metals to ensure that the column casings were delivered on time and met all the requirements.

To reduce disruption to passengers, Eltherington worked with the installation team to ensure that the column casings could be fitted quickly and efficiently. The company provided U-shaped wall column casings to cover up unsightly cables and existing I beams. Additionally, the column casings were designed to comply with DDA regulations and were supplied with blue bands.

All column casings were made of stainless steel, which is tough and hardwearing, making them suitable for withstanding the high numbers of passengers that use the station. Moreover, the column casings were designed to be non-combustible and had a class O surface spread of flame. Eltherington's secret fix system contributed to the contemporary aesthetics of the facade.

In summary, Eltherington's involvement in the construction of Sunderland Station helped to create a safe, aesthetically pleasing and functional solution for the client. The company's ability to provide a wide range of finishes and designs in compliance with DDA regulations ensured that the column casings met the specific needs of the project.
