New RRV Maintenance Shed at Crewe
Design and build scheme to provide a new shed facility to accommodate Road Rail Vehicles (RRV) on the depot.
Date CompletedApril 2016
A construction project including foundations, steel frame erection and cladding, completed with fitting the interior with essential safety requirements.
The scheme outline was to provide a new shed facility to accommodate RRV vehicles on the depot so that these vehicles’ maintenance could be carried out indoors.
Works began by excavating and preparing the existing ground for new concrete foundations. A new galvanized steel frame was erected along with purlins on the roof and sides of the building, ready for cladding panels. New composite cladding panels were fitted along with trims around all the pedestrian and roller shutter door openings. The building was completed with new pedestrian fire doors, ramps with essential clamp handrails, new drainage systems, Armco crash barriers around the apron slab, a new 110v transformer electrical installation, LED lighting, fire alarm, gas heating and LEV ventilation system.
The result was a fully constructed and kitted out maintenance facility for the use of Road Rail Vehicles (RRV) with supporting safety measures and interior requires including, but not limited to, lighting, heating and ventilation.
