LUL - G-053
Civil Engineering - Building and Station Structures
|Publication Date:||1 February 2008|
The Scope of this Manual is to provide guidance on the application of the requirements for the life cycle of Building and Station Structure assets owned by LU for:
Inception and design
Construction, installation, testing and commissioning
Condition assessment and certification
Strengthening and renewal
This Manual mirrors the sub-section headings of LU standard 1-053 (Civil Engineering - Building and Station Structures) at the start of each life cycle section, but additionally has further sub-sections added to each life-cycle section where there is further guidance material available to LU that does not specifically relate to the sub-section headings used in the standard, or is better set out separately.
The information contained in this Manual is derived mainly from historical information contained in existing LU documents and therefore does not necessarily reflect current good practice. Where possible, existing historical information has been supplemented by references to current good industry practice.
This Manual replaces G-053 A1
The purpose of this Manual of Good Practice is to support LU Standard 1-053 (Civil Engineering - Building and Station Structures) and give guidance on established good practice solutions that meet the requirements of that standard. The Building and Station Structure assets comprise:
Train washing facilities;
Roof structure and support.
Canopies (Entrance and Platform);
Staff mess and locker rooms.
Building and station ancillary structures:
Escalator support structures;
