Modular Wiring System powers King’s Cross Station

Modular Wiring Systems has designed, manufactured and supplied modular power and lighting distribution systems for Kings Cross Station in London, a Grade 1 listed building.

Working with English Heritage to protect the station building whilst also transforming it into a world class transport hub, Modular Wiring Systems has designed the distribution systems to run underfloor throughout the station, with the exception of the platforms. Where this is not possible, cables will be run through small 80mm holes in the walls. Such restrictions require exceptional system flexibility, which was found in Modular Wiring Systems’ products and design process..

Logistics was also an important factor in this prestigious installation due to limited on site storage, requiring just in time delivery which Modular Wiring Systems was readily able to accommodate. This is made possible by the offsite pre fabrication of the system, including pre wired distribution boards, which can then be stored and delivered to site at the exact time and date specified by the client. This also makes for quick installation with reduced labour requirements, whilst actually improving the quality of the finished system as potential risks posed by on-site conditions are eliminated. It’s a very modern concept that actually works exceptionally well in an old listed building.

By the time it is completed in Summer 2012, over £400 million will be invested in King’s Cross Station, funded by the Department for Transport and Network Rail. The station will be extended through a new large western concourse, improving access and passenger experience.

Modular Wiring Systems is a leading company in this field and has been providing a complete design, manufacture and supply service for high and low level modular sub-circuit distribution systems prefabricated off-site since 1994.
