Transformer Installation

Radius Group recently played integral part in the MEP fit out works at the Paddington Cube, integrating London Underground’s existing Bakerloo Line tube station with a new entrance underneath the Paddington Cube building. The new tube entrance is part of a £65m investment in transport and the public realm on the Paddington Square development. 

The HV (high voltage) transformer room – the primary power supply for the project – was delivered and installed by our skilled crew, over a 10-day lift schedule.  In total we delivered 56 lifts, all planned to precision by our extended team of experts; Lonsdale Rail, Mace and ISS.   

Radius Group are an active member of the Lonsdale Rail Delivery Partnership and we were thrilled to be given the opportunity to deliver this project and build on our growing relationship. 

“As a trusted company with The Michael Lonsdale Group, Radius are no stranger to us. Our in-house teams have collaborated with Radius for numerous projects throughout the years, successfully delivering bespoke lifts such as the exciting helicopter lift at Wells Fargo a few years back. The relationship extends to our Paddington project team, as the Electrical Project Manager Overseeing the event, John Monahan, has worked closely with Radius on previous specialist lifts” Michael J Lonsdale

“Radius Group had a huge part to play in the success of the series of deliveries. Everything required from Radius was done to an exemplary level, running extensive planning and feasibility work to help. This follows their ethos of engaging early, treating every job as its own to build a bespoke plan” Michael J Lonsdale

Steve Hickford, Senior Contracts Manager for Radius, shared the praise, giving homage to John “John was fantastic… he worked tirelessly to make sure everybody worked together”

This is what the Lonsdale Rail Delivery Partnership prides itself on; maximising the strengths of each partner to build a partnership philosophy that exerts a healthy project mentality.

With everyone sitting side by side, we create a sole focus on delivering a project as a sole team. In this instance, our thorough planning and flexibility enabled a successful 10-day lift, delivering 56 items the first time. Together, as the Lonsdale Rail Delivery Partnership, we are creating the right environment.
