Project: Leeds Railway Station – New Southern Entrance Building

Client: Premier Technical Services Group
Client contacts: Surveyor - Joe Darrington / Contracts Manager – Brian Whittaker

The project
An iconic – striking new railway station entrance building. Combining a curved Gold Shingle roof & an aluminium KalZip standing seam roof

Project brief
To create a safe means of access to undertake Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) works – such as gutter cleaning.

Project challenges
All access via water – all labour & materials to be transported to site via Canal barge. The roof curves in 3 directions

Project Solution

  1. Mild Steel Access platform constructed within existing roof void with Ascent access ladder to roof hatch
  2. From the roof hatch an Ascent Access walkway complete with anti-slip open grid flooring & folding handrail to both sides was installed. (folding handrail were a very specific client requirement to ensure the clean curved lines of the building were maintained.)
