Mile End shaft awarded an FDO

Mile End shaft is the first Crossrail asset to be awarded the Final Design Overviews (FDO) certificate. The presentation was made by Crossrail CEO Andrew Wolstenholme at a ceremony at Mile End shaft last month, with the shafts team and consultants including WW+P attending.  FDO certificates are awarded once sites resolve the outstanding critical actions identified as part of the FDO review process, a prerequisite to handing over the infrastructure to Transport for London.  

Chris Binns, Chief Engineer, said: “I am delighted to have celebrated Mile End shaft team’s success in being the first element of our infrastructure to have their integrated design acknowledged as being collectively safe, operable, and maintainable and that it will perform in accordance with the sponsor’s requirements. This is a key milestone marking the completion of the bottom of the ‘V’ project lifecycle, and now means we have a firm baseline from which to complete testing and commissioning on the way to handover.’’

WW+P was appointed to act as multi-disciplinary design team lead, responsible for managing the design and delivery of this highly complex, multi-faceted project, combined with full assurance duties. We are the only architecture firm within the whole Crossrail project to undertake this complex role.

The shafts are located in the central London section of Crossrail, at Mile End, Eleanor Street, Stepney Green, Limmo Peninsula and Fisher Street and are used for intervention access, public evacuation, tunnel ventilation, and MEP facilities.
