Health and safety is a top priority for Nationwide Platforms and on behalf of Network Rail, we worked alongside AmcoGiffen, a trusted partner of choice for the design and delivery of engineering, construction and maintenance services. Together, the partners embarked on a large-scale maintenance project.
The project was set up to review 175 different train stations to ensure their outbuildings and infrastructure, are maintained and meet health and safety standards, as well as helping to conserve and protect a number of stations which contain buildings of historical significance.
Lancaster Train Station was one of the latest buildings to undergo a survey.
Many railway stations have been around for hundreds of years, and over time these buildings experience natural wear and tear due to environmental and human impact. To maintain the structural integrity of these buildings and ensure they continue to be the safest possible thoroughfares for public use, they require regular comprehensive inspections.
As each location has its own unique layout and building structure, finding the correct machine to provide the safest method to inspect each train station was of paramount importance.
