EDF Energy TSA

Atkins has been providing consultancy services to British Energy (now EDF) for more than 10 years. We are one of four top tier suppliers to EDF Energy as part of the Technical Services Alliance (TSA), aimed at improving their operational and commercial performance and providing appropriate support for the remaining operational life of its power stations, as well as securing life extension.

Atkins takes a strategic role in the planning of British Energy’s on-going workload, as well as enabling the development of cost-effective long-term solutions to their on-going operations. Our strength lies in being able to seamlessly pull together specialist multidisciplinary teams to meet the unique challenges faced by the nuclear generation industry.

Birmingham New Street Station

As lead consultant for the Birmingham New Street Station project, Atkins is providing a range of services that will double the passenger capacity of the station and act as a stimulus for the regeneration of surrounding areas.

The project sees the £600m remodelling and refurbishment of the Birmingham New Street Station in the heart of Birmingham to create a world-class gateway to the UK's second largest city. Atkins' proposed design improves connectivity to the city and public transportation and includes a dramatic new atrium bringing natural light into the centre of the concourse.

Anchor Care Homes

Atkins is providing multidisciplinary services including sustainability consultancy to develop an innovative residential care home with increased space standards and amenity facilities situated on a green belt.

Using Atkins' deep skills base, this 'next generation' care home takes into consideration a wide variety of factors and will set a new benchmark for the care of older frail people, and as such is designed specifically around their needs. Our design not only answers the larger challenge of building in a protected green belt site, but also includes the innovation of bespoke furniture to cater for the needs of residents.

Cross rail

Atkins was awarded the architectural component contract for all the stations and associated structures. This award covers the design and specification of interior elements such as the wall and ceiling finishes, cladding systems, seating, lighting, and way finding.

A joint Arup/Atkins team will undertake one of the largest and most important elements of the Cross rail project - the detailed design of the major twin tunnels to be bored beneath Central London. Currently this is Europe’s biggest civil engineering project and set to be one of the most heavily used lines in the UK.

London 2012 legacy transformation

Following our work providing much of the infrastructure for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Atkins is working with the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) to oversee the technical transformation of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park from Games venue into an exciting new visitor destination and community park.

The project includes acting as Technical Approval Authority so the transformation of the Olympic Park is completed to required standards on behalf of local authorities, as well as providing guidance on the removal of temporary infrastructure, the conversion of permanent venues, infrastructure and landscape into legacy configurations, and the further development of local infrastructure such as highways, a 7km mountain biking track and a 1.6km competitive cycling circuit.

The contracts include the provision of technical reviews, independent structural checks, supervisory services, environmental monitoring and testing, flood and crowd modelling, transport impact studies, and also the provision of cost consultancy services.
