Tottenham Hale Bus Station and Texlon® ETFE Design
Tottenham Hale bus station is part of the national rail and London Underground interchange station, located in London, England. Following the 2011 riots in Tottenham, a redevelopment of the tube, bus and rail stations was promoted to encourage investment in the area. As part of the developement project, Vector Foiltec was commissioned to be part of the team. Vector Foiltec installed six Texlon® ETFE canopies that seamlessly combine aesthetics, design and functionality.
Optimized Design Concepts for Effective Results
In spite of the harsh weather conditions surrounding the area, we were able to help optimize the project design to alleviate ponding issues. Therefore, each canopy comprises four foil panels that are welded together and supported by radial cables. Moreover, the radial cables enhance the design without overpowering the visual appearance of the canopies.
In addition to our multi-layer inflated technology, demand for Texlon® ETFE single membrane technology is growing. This single-skin technology is evolving quickly, whereby aesthetics and functionality are paramount. The six canopies at Tottenham Hale bus station are a testament to this.
The Texlon® ETFE canopies we installed were a finalist for Best Urban Design in the 2018 Haringey Design Awards. Moreover, the project was also a national finalist in the Structural Steel Design Awards in 2015.
