OUR WORK

CHILL FACTORe – MANCHESTER:


The Faulkner Browns Architects’ designed indoor ski centre Chill Factore is home to the UK’s longest  (180m) indoor skiing and snowboarding slope and the coolest family day out in the North West. The development of an Alternative Design Scheme for the primary structure by Atom Consultants helped to bring this project within budget for the main contractor Sir Robert McAlpine.

The Atom proposals for the structure had to withstand 16 tonnes of fresh snow produced each night, so that we can let it snow and snow in Manchester- quite a challenge, when the top of the main run is 35m off the ground and slopes at 15 degrees.

SPORT & LEISURE:

” We have become specialists in the delivery of indoor ski centres thanks to the excellent support provided by Atom Consultants. “

Vauxhall Underground Station- London

The Vauxhall Underground Station modernisation is part of Transport for London’s ongoing investment into London’s public transport network to support economic growth and employment opportunities.

The £36m project entailed reconfiguration of the station’s ticket hall to accommodate extra ticket gates and wide-aisle gates, as well as the refurbishment of the stations’ subways, ticket hall and stairs. The main part of the project was to make the access to the station step-free, enabling the station to handle 40% more passengers by installing a new shaft and lift between the ticket hall and platforms. A particular challenge was posed by the station remaining fully operational while the construction work took place between 2014 and 2016.

Winton Primary School Sports Hall- London

The London Borough of Islington had a requirement for a new sports hall to be used out-of-hours by the local community and it was to be built on the roof of and existing school- Winton Primary School.

To minimise disruption to this ‘live’ site, a modular approach was adopted. All components of the build were pre-fabricated, starting from the structural steel wall and roof panels and ending with the beautiful western red cedar clad external facade.
