Redeveloping Farringdon: A Grade II Listed Station

Summary

Protecting and enhancing cultural heritage formed one of the Thameslink Programme’s nine sustainability objectives and for the Farringdon Station the most significant impact of the work was due to the importance of the building’s heritage. The building is Grade II listed, but railway stations in Greater London are under the direction of English Heritage (EH) and therefore the determination process is the same as for a Grade I listed building. The work that was carried out with regards to the Historic Environment helped the project to score 100% in this section of the CEEQUAL submission whilst also setting standards for best practice across the programme.
