We were fortunate enough to be involved in the iconic refurbishment of Birmingham New Street station. The enormous redesign of the station to provide a light filled concourse, 5 times bigger than the previous one. Works also included redevelopment of the Pallasades shopping centre to the new Grand Central, which links to the existing Bull ring.

CPS Ltd were engaged by Prime Construction to assist in the delivery of the fit out packages of the Network Rail assets in the new station. We installed the partitions and ceilings to all the public WC’s, Cross country Rail facility, London Midland offices, the ticket office, Virgin first class lounge, Grand central shopping centre and all back of house areas.

Working in a live railway station environment whilst undertaking complex refurbishment works was certainly one of the biggest challenges. Our teams flexible and dedicated approach meant that working ever changing shift patterns was no issue.

We were also heavily involved in the installation and relocation of the prefabricated modular passenger tunnel installed on the project, with CPS operatives providing the manpower behind the complicated logistical challenge.
