Who are The Paddington Integrated Project
The Paddington Integrated Project (PIP) represents a collaboration between Crossrail, London Underground, Network Rail and Transport for London (TfL) to create a fully integrated station.
Over the past 15 years Paddington station has undergone several improvement programmes – new platform surfaces, improved passenger information systems and a new shopping, eating and waiting area called “The Lawn”.
Warrior Doors were commissioned by TfL to produce an LPS 1175 SR4 stainless steel high security door for the POM room, one of the most secure ‘backroom’ areas where the money from ticket machines is collected.
Working closely with the architects Warrior designed, manufactured and installed the door to match their very exacting specifications and high security requirements.
Specifications included the body of the door being manufactured in Grade 304 stainless steel, full length stainless steel hinges, tamper proof fixings and a high security multi-point lock with access control system.
The door was installed through the night when the station was clear of the public to minimise inconvenience to commuters and to ensure security would not be compromised.
TfL and their architects are very pleased with the high security solution provided and Warrior are delighted to have completed the project, to help Transport for London and their partners keep on track with the transformation of Paddington Railway station.
