Abellio London have appointed Stocksfield Construction as Principal Contractor for a major refurbishment and extension of their existing bus depot in Battersea.
Abellio London operates the depot at Silverthorne Road, Battersea which they acquired from a previous bus operator “National Express”. Since their occupation of the facility in 2011, it has become increasingly apparent that Abellio London has been in need of alterations to enable the safe continued operation of the depot.
The new facility will see an increase of 60% of usable floor area with a 2-storey office extension to the front and a 4-bay depot extension to the rear. The vehicle capacity at the site will be increased from 195 N° buses up to a maximum of 245 N° buses.
Work is currently underway on site with structural steelwork now in place for the office extension.
Janus Architecture are appointed as Architects and Principal Designer for the development.
