Battersea Power Station

Simplify Engineering had the opportunity to assist in the new development of Battersea Power Station. The power station has been abandoned since the 1980’s, with it having to close due to air pollution. Simplify are privileged to have taken part in the £9 billion new development, in which new opportunities for hospitality, retail, residents and businesses have been created.

The project consisted of designing a new bi folding cantilevering gate for the development, which is 12 metres in size. The gate was preliminary designed to determine the feasibility of the current design, in which the provisional ideal sizes were provided by Intersteels.

To ensure the gates lifetime could be maximised and that the brackets do not fatigue, the top and bottom chords were stiffened.
