New Control Centre for Piccadilly Line


Robert West, appointed through the Transport for London framework, faced the challenge of redesigning and strengthening a four-storey building to serve as the new Piccadilly Line Control Centre. The redevelopment included creating space for a control centre, equipment rooms, office, and staff accommodation. A critical client requirement was to enhance the building’s blast resilience, and Robert West was responsible for the intricate design associated with this aspect.


The design began in April 2016 and was completed to a very challenging programme. Site works have been progressing since January 2017 and have reached completion. We have been providing on-site assistance during the implementation phase and also acted as the Temporary Works Coordinator, working closely with the contractor throughout.


We are confident that the high-end finish will delight the Piccadilly Line controllers as they spend time in their new state-of-the-art environment.
