White Hart Lane Station

NES worked with Fereday Pollard Architects and lead contractors Taylor Woodrow to produce a innovative new finish in the main entrance way at White Hart Lane.
Initially the architect had considered using real copper however, this was revised to anodised due to the restriction of the copper to only 1 meter panel widths. There were also longer terms concerns relating to how you would be able to clean the panels from graffiti and the moisture on peoples hand prints onto the exposed metal.
This is the first usage of Brass anodising in the UK.

The fixing system was horizontal invisible fix rails. This extruded two part system was securely fixed to the backs of the cladding panels via Capacitor Discharge (CD) Studd Welding. This enables each fixing to be tested to hold 10 Kn. Between the joints there was a 10mm chadows gap. Looking through those gaps the joint is covered with a slip is 1mm pre anodised aluminium. This level of detailing really pays off under closer examination.
The base has a brushed stainless steel skirting separately mounted up to 150mm from the ground.
In areas within two meters of ground level the aluminium had more horizontal brackets to improve the rigidity and stiffness of the panels from croud loading.

It was important the survey and fabrication detailing was extremely accurate to deal with the inconsistent brick arch way ellipses of the station dating back to 1872.
