NG Bailey has installed six prefabricated plant modules, each weighing over a tonne, at Transport for London’s Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) train maintenance and stabling depot at Old Oak Common Lane in north west London. It will include stabling sidings for 33 of the 66 new trains. NG Bailey is responsible for around £14 million-worth of mechanical, electrical and plumbing services.

The plantroom comes into operation this month (May) and is integrated with renewable-energy systems. The whole scheme will exceed the initial design target of 20% of the main building’s energy requirements coming from renewable sources, with the hybrid scheme set to deliver over 30% of the energy demand.

The 24 m2 modules were installed on site in just two days, with work completed in two weeks.

The hybrid renewable-energy system has been developed by renewable-energy specialist GI Energy in collaboration with main contractor Taylor Woodrow, NG Bailey and Uponor Building Services, with the lead-designer role fulfilled by Atkins Global. Uponor Building Services is responsible for underfloor heating and cooling pipework throughout the main depot building accommodation and workshop areas.
