LUL - REW Covered Wheel Area

The REW (Rail Engineering Workshop) at Acton Rail Depot invested in a new Factory extension & Storage Facility.

Constructed under LUL's stringent QUENSH Conditions, the project consisted of the construction of a new Steel Framed Extension to the existing REW Factory.

A particular feature of the project was the a complex system of piling and groundbeams designed around a high density of existing Sub-Terrianial High Voltage Cables.

We used 3d sub terrain scanning technology along with proving excavations to carefully plot and locate the cables.

We designed and constructed a Steel Framed, Steel Profiled Clad Factory extension with an Integral Gantry Crane, a Hydraulic Turntable and Railway System for the storage of new Train Wheel Sets.

The project was challenging but proved a great success and worthy additional to REW's State of the Art Engineering Facility at Acton.
