The contract works include electrical systems, cooling, lighting, drainage, power and pump systems.

The company was awarded the contract by Canary Wharf Contractors Ltd, part of Canary Wharf Group, which is designing and building the station box on behalf of Crossrail Ltd for a fixed price of £500m. Canary Wharf Group is contributing £150m.

Canary Wharf Crossrail station will be one of the largest across the new Crossrail network and is being constructed within the waters of North Dock. The station box is approximately the same size as One Canada Square – the original Canary Wharf tower - laid on its side. 

Above the station box, Canary Wharf Group is developing four levels of retail space and a roof-top park, partially covered by a semi open-air timber lattice roof.

In March 2012 Canary Wharf Contractors completed and handed over the lowest level of the station box to Crossrail, ready to receive the tunnel boring machines in 2013.

After the TBMs pass through, Canary Wharf Contractors will fit out the station with work due to complete in 2015. Work continues to construct the levels sitting directly above the station box.

Canary Wharf Contractors operations executive Michael Bryant said: “The delivery of Crossrail Canary Wharf station continues to move ahead. Significant progress has been achieved to-date, which has meant we could deliver the lowest level of the station to Crossrail five months ahead of schedule and within budget. We have started fit-out of the station above the platform level, with work continuing into next year. Briggs & Forrester’s expertise will allow us to continue to deliver this much needed piece of transport infrastructure for London ahead of time, within budget and to the highest possible quality standards.”
