Installation of Steelwork at Blackfriars


The new roof over Blackfriars Station platforms had to be constructed over a live railway and a working river

Prater delivered a complex roofing system at Blackfriars Bridge, London as part of a £350 million development within the wider Thameslink Programme. As a specialist external envelope contractor, Prater had the in-house expertise to make the complicated roof design a reality as well as the knowledge and experience to manage such a challenging working environment.
