Type 1/1200 BMU and Freely Laid Installation

Cento supply and install a new freely laid BMU and track system at Finwell House, London.

Principle Contractor:

Wates Construction.


Important development opportunities are being maximised by the demolition ofthe 1980′s extension to this 1950′s building. ORMS’ experience with re-using restricted floor-to-floor height buildings has enabled the introduction of air conditioning while retaining good ceiling heights. A planning application was submitted in March 2007 after close collaboration with planning officers about the impact onto this important conservation area.

The BMU:

A 2.9m Type1/1200 BMU situated on a freely laid track system

Scope of Works:

Cento designed and managed the whole project throughout, including:

  • Supply and install a Type1/1200 BMU
  • Supply and install the freely laid track system.
  • Supply and install new track electrics.
