OAG were delighted on New Years Day to see the conclusion of our work at London Bridge Station. With the first two phases being primarily centered around shop fronts & security glazing, we were excited to see the completion of our 275m long two phase façade on Tooley street.
In collaboration with Costain, we have installed multilevel façade glazing, with the upper tier consisting of our gorgeous curved façade & the lower our double height stacked bomb blast glazing.
Check out our installation video to see us in action on the lower façade, installing 5.6m high panes weighing in at 350kg each.
Further inside the station we were excited to see how our 26 glass archway shopfronts would look fitted in the historic surrounding red brick on Western Arcade. Our aim was to bring a modern touch to this Victorian barrel-vaulted retail area, in keeping with the stations character.
On the upper Tooley street facade we used suction cranes to lift the massive oversized glass 18m from the ground. See how we did it here
Finally, our retail glazing installation on Bermondsey street consisted of 7 no arches ,7 metres high by 7 metres width. OAG also provided the structural steel. The shopfronts comprise of structural glazing on a Raico stick system & Allgood automatic closer SG Schuco doors. In addition, we situated pressed metal anodised Analok blue grey & brushed stainless steel flashings at floor level.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Costain & Network Rail on this project & hope to work with them again in the near future.
