AHR have been commissioned by Strathclyde Partnership for Transport for a series of refurbishments of subway stations in Glasgow, the first being Hillhead subway station. The scope of the project included stripping the station back to its structure, replacing the escalators, entrance / ticketing hall and ticket systems, incorporate new security systems, replacing the people movement systems and completely renewing all finishes and signage. Additionally all mechanical and electrical systems were replaced and renewed. The principal challenge was to tailor the renewal systems precisely to the phasing required to maintain the operations of the station within a very confined environment.
