C405 Paddington Station



2014 MCS runners upC405 Paddington Station
Presented to: The Site Team
Contractor: Costain-Skanska JV
Client: Crossrail Ltd

This high profile civil engineering project for Crossrail requires the creation of a new ticket hall and underground interchange at Paddington station, London.

High quality, well-presented hoardings at this site display the history of Paddington Station and the project’s objectives for the benefit of passers-by and site visitors. Stakeholders, businesses and neighbours enjoy a first-class communication stream from newsletters, email and public meetings, as well as many personal visits to the sites drop-in centre.

Local businesses were widely encouraged to try for business opportunities on the site and both unemployed and young people were the focus of career support initiatives including reading mentoring. Further community initiatives included preparing, cooking and serving an Easter meal for a female transit home, renovating a vandalised local nursery garden and organising workshops designed to assist local people to get back into work.

This was an exceptional considerate performance by a highly professional site team.
