AW Rail – Arch Surveys – London
We continue to support several clients with operatives to assist in enabling works to carry out surveys to a wide range of tenanted and non-tenanted arches across London and the Southeast. With many of these arches constructed during the mid 1800’s making sure they are fit for use in the 21st century is an ongoing programme of works across the arch portfolio.
Our specialist experience of working on arches often helps our clients plan their surveys and inspections, our teams know what makes an arch tick and we are finding that we are being called upon more and more to assist with remedial works after these inspections have been completed.
With railway arches being tucked away below many of the UK’s historic railway tracks they provide a fantastic opportunity as premises for a wide range of small businesses, in this case a women’s only gym facility in the heart of E1 which was only accessible out of hours to minimise the impact on their business.
During the survey there was careful removal of sections of the arch lining system to allow further inspection of the structure behind and then reinstatement leaving the property clean and tidy.
Here at AW Rail, we get to see the good and the bad within the arches, from derelict property to established and thriving businesses. Bringing back these arches into use has a huge benefit to local communities and we look forward to being a part of this process for many years to come.
AW Rail Services have been delivering rail projects for several years right across the Rail & Construction sector.
Our extensive rail experience of over 120 years, combining decades of hands-on knowledge, providing building enhancements and maintenance solutions, improving infrastructure for passengers and operators, delivering major projects, and fulfilling long-term maintenance contracts really sets us apart.
Our services are varied from structural maintenance on tunnels, bridges, foot crossings, signal gantries, to station refurbishment, platform enhancements, civils works on and around the track, the mechanism management of lineside vegetation and further afield, painting of all types of structures and lastly but perhaps most importantly the provision of rail labour, not only supporting the projects we carry out for our projects but for the provision of labour to other clients.
