LUL - 1-053
Civil Engineering - Building and Station Structures
|Publication Date:||1 October 2010|
This Standard applies to Building and Station Structure assets owned by LU.
This Standard defines the civil engineering requirements for Building and Station Structure assets through the following life cycle stages:
a) Inception and design
b) Construction, installation, testing & commissioning
d) Analytical assessment
e) Condition assessment and certification
g) Strengthening and renewal
The purpose of this Standard is to define the whole life cycle civil and structural engineering requirements for Building and Station Structure assets. These assets comprise:
a) Building Structures
I) Office blocks
II) Storage buildings
V) Train washing facilities
VII) Roof structures and supports
b) Station Structures
I) Station buildings
II) Ticket Halls
IV) Canopies (Entrance and Platform)
V) Pump rooms
VI) Equipment rooms
VII) Control rooms
VIII) Staff mess and locker rooms
c) Building and Station Ancillary Structures
VI) Impact protection
VII) Escalator support structures
VIII) Lift support structures
In defining requirements specifically applicable to Building and Station Structure assets this Standard complements LU Standard 1-050 (Civil Engineering - Common Requirements) that defines mandatory requirements generally applicable to all Civil Engineering assets, including the Building and Station Structure assets.
A supporting Manual of Good Practice G-053 gives guidance and explanation on Building and Station Structure assets.
Building and Station Structure assets serve a functional requirement which is provided by;
a) civil and structural elements together with
c) drainage and
d) electrical and mechanical services.
This standard covers the civil and structural engineering aspects of the asset.
This standard does not cover the functional requirement of the asset, the architectural appearance, the finishes or the plant and equipment.
