DMC Group’s work around the London Underground system includes both new stations and those that conform to English Heritage guidelines. Major stations include Regent’s Park, Queensway, St. Pancras International link, Wood Lane and Maida Vale, to mention just a few. DMC has also recently completed a number of stations on the East London Line, namely Shoreditch, Dalston and Hoxton, and is currently working on Stratford International station… the list goes on.
King’s Cross Northern Ticket Hall, however, is at the pinnacle of the company’s achievements. This was opened late last year and is the largest project the DMC Group has undertaken to date. Not only did DMC undertake the installation of the vast areas of terrazzo floor tiles and pre-cast stair units,but also fixed the mosaic wall tiling, the Howe Green Access covers and frames, the screeding, the rendering and the balustrades. Managing director, David McCartney, who spearheaded the operation on site from the start said, “This project is a landmark for DMC Group – it was quite a challenge and a very demanding project for us but with a careful eye for detail, coupled with tight control on site, and carefully selected specialist installations teams we achieved all our objectives – on time – and to the satisfaction of our client. We are very proud of this one.”
The project is a credit to terrazzo as a product, which in its many different forms has been specified on the London Underground for well over 60 years. The versatility of terrazzo makes it an internationally used product found in airport and railway terminals, shopping malls, hospitals, schools, supermarkets and most major internal areas that are heavily foot-trafficked. Added to its renowned durability, low maintenance costs and extremely hard-wearing surface you have the ultimate flooring surface that will last for years. No wonder it has been used on the London Underground for so long – and is still going strong.
