Briggs Amasco were issued a contract for the station’s roof repairs by Network Rail under CP4 funding.
The station’s original canopy was prone to leaking and beginning to fall apart with material often dropping onto the platform below.
There were also traces of chrysotile asbestos found in the roof coverings, meaning it had to be completely stripped and replaced.
Sika Liquid Plastics roofing system was specified for the replacement of the old roof. 900 square metres of the new roofing system was installed over the station’s main platform.
The system includes a Decothane Delta 25 Liquid Plastics product with 120mm thick Decotherm insulation and Decothane base and top coats.
These materials were specified for the project for their long life span and environmental credentials.
The roof also required a series of concrete repairs. Upon completion, its trim was painted to match the rail operator’s corporate colours.
The train station remained open throughout the refurbishment, tasking Briggs Amasco with installing the roof without disturbing commuters and the staff. To reduce the amount of noise and dust, acoustic mats and polythene were used in the installation process.
The job also included the installation of a CCTV system and new full barrel vault roof lights.
