    This maintenance and repair depot for Class 66 locomotives includes Curtin’s design for the foundations and superstructure, which comprises a steel framed high bay workshop (15m to eaves), with braced/compound stanchions providing lateral stability and support to heavy-duty over-head gantry cranes.

    The facility incorporates maintenance pits, office accommodation, welfare facilities, external yards and rail-track ways. A Phase 1 Detailed Desk Study and subsequent Phase 2 Intrusive Investigation were undertaken on the development site to provide parameters for both the new buildings and track bed design, but also allowing discharge of relevant contaminated land planning conditions.

    The design of this project was successfully managed in a BIM ‘environment’, with close collaboration and consultation with the client, D&B Contractor, Architect and M&E engineer, providing a fully co-ordinated virtual building model in 3d, using state of the art Revit software.
