Part of this Great Western Railways owned site at Swindon is being regenerated as new accommodation and apartments.
£1 million/500 tonnes of steel over the course of 18 months
All structural and architectural metalwork, intumescent fire-proof painting, walkways, glass balconies and railings.
All apartments built on a steel frame, to allow open-plan car parking underneath and maximise accommodation above ground.
New structures built within metres of the existing, listed GWR building.
Delicate remedial propping in sequence with installation of new steel to ensure stability and protection of existing wall.
Worked alongside a member of Network Rail who monitored the lift-plan and risk assessment that Alpine had submitted.
London to Bristol main railway line was within the falling-radius of the site crane. A meticulously planned lift-plan had to be agreed in advance with Network Rail, and was monitored and observed by the client throughout.
Potential fines of up to £20,000 per hour for train delays caused by non-observance of pre-agreed standards.
