Design Services

Our competent & experienced in-house design team are fully versed with the current industry trends, standards and assurance processes. This in depth knowledge allows us to manage the design process effectively to reduce overall programme length and costs.

Our expertise associated with Systems and Construction Design enable us to deliver projects effectively and efficiently to meet and often exceed our clients’ requirements and expectations.

Our proven design process gives us the insight to identify build-ability issues; propose alternative design solutions, and where we believed it would be beneficial, recommend that intrusive surveys are to be carried out to highlight any potential design issues.

Our design team includes of CAD engineers specialising in the production of 3D & BIM modelling, allowing our clients the ability to clearly visualise our designs throughout the process. Areas of expertise include:

  • CCTV – inc OPO, DOO
  • Fibre Optic
  • Fire Alarms
  • LV power inc lighting, small power etc…
  • Mechanical systems inc HVAC, Air Conditioning, heating & ventilation
  • PAVA
  • Radio Systems
  • UPS Systems

London Underground – Bakerloo OPO Project

Contract Value: £500,000

Delatim were responsible for managing the detailed design for MDA relocations and coordinating

the worksites at a number of stations on the Bakerloo Line to install new OPO equipment.

Delatim delivered the following works:

  • Completing the detailed designs for new OPO systems using the latest 3D modelling technology
  • Managed a multi discipline design which included Communications, Electrical, Civils and premises
  • OPO Camera Benchmarking (Day and Night captures)
  • Setting out / spot marking of designed locations for OPO equipment
  • Enabling existing OPO equipment if necessary
  • Cable Management Systems (CMS) Installation
  • CAT scanning and Platform excavation for MDAs and Camera Posts
  • Mass concrete base installation
  • Cable Installation and Testing
  • Installation of Communications and Electrical OPO equipment
  • Testing & Commissioning
  • Handover
Delatim produced 3D design drawings for all OPO locations

TFL – Earl’s Court Communications Upgrade

Contract Value –  £2,500,000

As part of the Station Stabilisation Project (SSP), Delatim were contracted by London Underground’s STAKE division to undertake the Communications upgrade works at Earls Court Station.

The Communications Package was bespoke to Earls Court station and included a number of technical elements that were being implemented for the first time on the underground network, the finest example of this was a hybrid PA/PAVA system to mitigate the long standing noise abatement order that was issued from the last PA upgrade in excess of 10 years previously.

Delatim were also closely involved with the clients engineering team and stakeholders, this allowed third party interfaces to develop, thus ensuring systems were brought into use with minimum disruption to the operation whilst maintaining full use of both the new and existing systems during the trial running prior to BIU.

Delatim undertook the detailed design in accordance with LU’s extensive assurance process producing compliant submissions and detailed CAD information to ensure that the system was both functional and buildable prior to the system going to site for construction. This was largely achieved by constructing a representative solution at our office facilities to configure and demonstrate the integrated systems and the bespoke interfaces prior to it going to site for construction. This provided a high degree of confidence that no major defects were prevalent and that the proposed testing regime was sufficient to bring the integrated system into use.

Works included:

  • PAVA
  • Data Networks and Fibre Back-bone
  • IP CCTV surveillance and recording system
  • SMS MICA
  • Master clock and slave units
  • Commend Help Point
  • Passenger Information Displays
