Rotherham Train Station
Scope of works:
The architectural designs are for South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE), Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) and Yorkshire Forward, and has seen the station significantly upgraded to rival other improved stations in Barnsley, Doncaster and Sheffield. The station provides a key gateway to Rotherham for local rail users and provides a vital link via Doncaster and Sheffield to mainline services for Scotland, London, Birmingham, Manchester and other regions across the country. In addition to transport facilities, the station also incorporate a new passenger lounge, retail space and a travel and information centre and the high-quality standard of the proposed designs for the facilities at the new Rotherham Railway Station will represent a step change in service provision and station design, for visiting travellers and the regional community.
The creativity and impact of profiles used on the new platforms and entrance feature have been made possible by the introduction of Bailey Laser-Line carcassing system. This is an accurately fabricated one-piece component that can be aligned using laser beams or traditional methods. Using laser beams allows complete elevations to be aligned easily and with far greater accuracy than more traditional measurements. Laser-Line’s strength and light weight means that the carcassing brackets fix directly to the structure with as few as two points. In addition, the fascia/soffit could be install fast and efficiently which is a essential to station installations.
