Across the UK rail network there are stations of all sizes and representing a significant part of Networks Rails asset portfolio.
Station buildings are often subject to extremes of usage or weather due to their locations, this means that they become dilapidated quickly over time meaning that at some point they will need renovation work, either in small areas or full refurbishment.
At AW Rail we are used to working on all types of station buildings whether that be a simple painting job to a more complex and planned refurbishment, strip out or rebuild we can help with your planned or schedule of works.
Utilising qualified staff able to work within the rail environment (PTS Operatives) we have completed project after project over the years. No job is too big or too small whether it’s something as straightforward as a broken pane of glass in a window or as extensive as a complete refit of a canopy, restoring ornate and possibly listed structures sympathetically, upgrades to electrical systems, car park refurbishments or the installation of station lighting we have it covered.
With many station buildings requiring updating to meet the requirements of a changing population and improvements in technology we are ideally suited to offer a diverse range of services, installation of DDA compliant ramps and handrails, help points, PID’s, PA’s and car park improvements including the installation of EV charge points, solar charging systems for lighting and more.
Often station buildings and their environs house several other facets, this maybe a retail outlet, offices or in some cases accommodation, a railway yard or depot, whatever the requirement that these assets have AW Rail can carry out these works.
Keeping people safe on stations doesn’t stop at the installation of preventative barriers or guard rails, witches hats etc – All stations have a considerable amount of electrical elements to keep them functioning, our M&E teams regularly conduct electrical safety inspections on anything from station lighting to full fuse board substation switching gear.
AW Rail believe in preparation and prevention with regards to maintenance and understand the daily needs of a job or organisation that requires high or low maintenance and planning for any eventuality is a must in today’s economic climate. The level of planned maintenance is tailored to the specific needs of our clients across a broad range of sectors, and we have the capabilities, resources and knowledge to deliver time and time again.
