The Grade I listed structure presented design challenges

SAS International has provided ceiling solutions for the Grade I listed St Pancras International Eurostar station in London.

The Undercroft, originally used to warehouse beer barrels, now houses shops, and departure and arrival areas, so cast-iron columns support a grid of wrought iron girders stretching in all directions. Working metal ceiling solutions and bespoke lighting rafts were supplied to complement the design.

The height restrictions of the Undercroft also represent a challenge, when designing the ceiling solution. Above the travelators, aluminium SAS System 330 suspended ceilings provide a clean, durable surface.

The same ceiling tiles were specified in other areas of the project, under the first-level bridges and in the international departure area.

A robust aluminium solution, with ready-made apertures for luminaries, adds to the streamlined appearance of refitted areas.
