Martifer Metallic Constructions develops the engineering of the metallic construction of Birmingham New Street station

The Gateway project will transform Birmingham's New Street station, an infrastructure built in the 60’s, to create a stunning 21st century transport hub for Birmingham and the West Midlands. This project is being delivered by Network Rail, in partnership with Mace.

This transformation will improve the railway station, which will become three times bigger, brighter, more accessible and with a strong aesthetical presence. It will also stimulate regeneration in the city by improving the areas surrounding the station, and create new jobs through the redevelopment of the Pallasades shopping centre which will be anchored by a new John Lewis department store on the south side of the station.

Martifer Metallic Constructions is proudly participating in the redevelopment of New Street Station. The company is leveraging its track record and accumulated experience in metallic constructions in more than 20 years, as well as its expertise in façade engineering via its subsidiary Martifer Aluminium.

From the several works developed by the company to Network Rail, we highlight the 20000 sqm of stainless steel façade.  This façade will be composed by more than 8500 stainless steel panels, supported by more than half a million fixing structures. Almost every panel will be unique, in order to adjust to the peculiar geometry of the building.

The stainless steel used in this building is produced in Finland and polished, cut and machined in the United Kingdom.

Martifer is also in charge of the structural steelwork for the roof, the supply and assembly of the entrance level façades and doors, with firebreak and bomb blast equipped areas, and the modular façade of the John Lewis department store.

The project will be developed in a three-year period and is expected to be concluded by 2015.
