Rail and Underground
John F Hunt are proud to have successfully carried out many demolition projects on or above live main line stations across London, whilst maintaining full operational status.
Protecting Your Assets
Our dedicated RISQS accredited Engineering professionals, work directly with Crossrail, London Underground and Network Rail to provide detailed feasibility studies and methodology of all stages of the required works.
Meticulous planning guarantees your assets remain protected throughout the demolition programme, whilst we provide safe, pedestrian access through the station and ensure that local business, rail staff and the general public are as unaffected as possible.
Our teams design and install protection decks if required, to safeguard rails, cables and signalling systems adjacent to the operational railway.
We demonstrate our knowledge and understanding of your project to Rail and Underground authorities for their approval, by presenting our precise methodology with detailed 3D erection sequences.
With our Safety Critical Staff in place for Network Rail and London Underground operations, our capabilities enable us to undertake the complete demolition and asbestos removal of large structures above live underground stations, whilst maintaining its full operation.
If noise and vibration are of key concern when carrying out structural demolition close to live underground lines and tunnels, we use the specialist services of John F Hunt Concrete Cutting to employ non-percussive drilling, and sawing techniques to overcome the issues, enabling works to continue with noise and vibration monitoring being carried out until completion.
