We were approached by the client who needed a quick response to a new locomotive workshop extension for the on-going track maintenance and upgrading programme in the North West.

The client had previously had plans drawn up for an alternative building but due to the time it was taking to bring from conception to installation, they contacted us for a faster solution.

We provided a permanent steel building giving them all the benefits of a conventional building at a fraction of the time and cost of a conventional building.

Interior Workshop Building


We provided a full site investigation report to determine the current ground conditions, and to establish possible ground contamination issues. Our in house design engineering team of Andy and Ross designed and certified the concrete foundation to meet building control requirements

We then designed, supplied and installed a steel clad ‘HYBRID’ building of dimensions 12.5mtr x 25mtr x 6.5mtr which was clad in slate blue 40mm composite cladding.

We also removed the existing frontage of their workshop and also over-clad their existing building so the entire shed now looks brand new.
