Crossrail

A talk by Julian Maynard, Maynard Design

crossrailCrossrail is the new high frequency, convenient and accessible railway for London and the South East. From 2018 Crossrail will make travelling easier and quicker. It will reduce crowding on London’s transport network, carrying more than 1500 passengers in each train during peak periods.

In partnership with Atkins/Grimshaw our scope of work was to design a unified family of common products and systems, creating a Crossrail line wide identity within the station environments and maximising cost-efficiencies through a common design. Our aim was to design a modern, minimal, elegant and functional transport system that enhances the passenger experience.

Creative work included the development of a product family, based on existing standards, and detailed design guidelines for all members of the product family.

All architectural components were integrated into the fabric of the architecture, and pilot schemes were used to test the proposals and collate budget costs for the project programme.

The final guideline is in place as the key reference point for network development.
