Following a successful competitive tendering exercise under OJEU, TSS was appointed to the Framework in April 2014 to provide Project Management, Quantity Surveying (QS), CDM coordination (CDMC) and site management / Clerk of Works services across the Merseyrail network.
TSS work with an integrated project team providing liaison with key stakeholders both internal and external, including Network Rail, Merseytravel and the project designers, the development of the collaborative nature in which we work. We hold regular formal and informal face to face meetings with the contract stakeholders, consolidated with formal review processes, and governance reporting at key stages of all projects. At the outset of being appointed, we took the decision to co-locate with Merseyrail, enabling close collaboration and cohesive team working.
Hamilton square station was opened in 1886, as part of the Mersey Railway and Mersey Tunnel construction. The station and its sister station James St (Which TSS also managed an underground restoration project on in 2015/ 2016) are the oldest deep line underground stations in the world. Hamilton Square was designed by G E Grayson in red brick, with red terracotta detailing.
The inclusion of circular windows and a top-lit booking hall with timber beams and iron queen post roof, complement the adjacent 37 metre-high tower which is second only to the one at St Pancras station in height. The tower, which exhibits a variety of brick detailing as it rises to the balustrade and corner turrets at its topmost level, was constructed to hold 10,000 gallons of water for the operation of three hydraulic lifts, each capable of holding 100 people linking the street level entrance hall with the platforms below.
