Paddington Station

The Paddington Integrated Project (PIP) is a joint venture between Crossrail (CRL), Network Rail (NR), London Underground (LUL) and Transport for London (TFL). This document focuses on the London Underground, Final Fit Out (FFO) aspect of the works. The works involved Final Fit Out (FFO) of the back of house areas to the new Paddington Hammersmith & City Line Station (H&C), which is served by LUL’s H&C Line. The works were undertaken within the newly constructed H&C Line station building and the refurbished H&C line island platform. The new station structure required fitting out of 4 main areas, Basement Level, Concourse Area, Mezzanine Level, and the existing platform.


The works were required at Paddington H&C Line Station, which is served by London Underground Limited’s Hammersmith & City Line, providing a link to Paddington Network Rail Station and London Underground Paddington main station served by Bakerloo, District and Circle Lines.
