Howe Green’s involvement with Crossrail, the new frequency, high capacity railway for London and the South East of England, is gaining momentum as the specialist manufacturer works to provide easy access to building services at various sites.

At Adams Place, on the approach to Canary Wharf, a series of large linear brick planters spanning over 43 square feet each is under construction. They will house contemporary LED lighting designed to add to the dynamics of the area’s striking urban landscape.

Howe Green worked with the external stone contractor to develop a bespoke wall access cover encasing power supplies and circuitry feeding the lights and ensuring ongoing access for maintenance is quick and easy. The stylish wall access covers are manufactured from 3/16” stainless steel, as opposed to 1/16” for the standard Waldor. These custom-made covers are lockable for added security and feature a broad show edge creating maximum aesthetic contrast against the smooth, glazed planters.

Howe Green’s 1050 Series stainless steel floor access covers have also been manufactured to order for the walkways of Adams Place. Each floor cover has an additional load bearing which has been specified to accommodate the latest in aerial high-rise fire fighting appliances. Inside the train station itself, over 30 of Howe Green’s 5000 series stainless steel floor access covers have been installed within Canary Wharf’s ticket hall and back of house for easy access to essential services.

“Howe Green is perfectly placed to meet the evolving challenges of major projects like Crossrail.” said Richard Centa, Howe Green’s Sales and Marketing Manager. “Our skilled workforce and ongoing investment in plant and technology means we can supply tailored designs and individual specs to solve unique access problems from site to site without having to charge any premium”.
