Stirling Railway Station was built in 1915 and is a Category A listed building.
DMCS Ltd carried out the replacement roof glazing works for Story Contracting as part of their overall canopy refurbishment programme. Approximately 3200m2 of existing roof glazing was replaced with a new polycarbonate glazing system, significantly enhancing both passenger and staff overall experience whilst making their way through or working in this busy station.
Works commenced in September 2015, and through working both day and night, were completed two months early in May 2016.
We have conducted signal box refurbishments at various locations throughout Scotland, as follows: Auchterarder, Blackford (Near Stirling), Barrhead (Glasgow), Longforgan (Dundee), Hilton Junction (Perth), Kingussie and Montrose North.
Works comprised of an all-trade refurbishment to facilitate significant improvement of the working environment for signalling staff and to preserve the integrity of the existing structures. Some of the signal boxes are “listed” therefore requiring additional attention to replacement materials and the workmanship to replicate the original construction detail and appearance. Individual values of refurbishments varied from £50,000 to £200,000 with overall contract value approximately £750,000. Works were carried out whilst boxes were operational and in line with Network Rail’s strict health and safety policies.
During the first quarter of 2009, we undertook a major renovation project at Perth Signalling Centre, which is situated directly across the lines from the Perth Railway Station. The centre was showing signs of its age with a flat roof and single glazing which had poor insulation qualities. Our works package included fitting a new steel frame and cladding sloping roof and a new energy efficient curtain walling / window system. The client was delighted with the end result in terms of quality, duration of the works and co-operation with Network Rail staff especially since the centre had to be fully operational during the refurbishment.
The project scope was to improve waiting facilities at various stations/train stops throughout the North and North East of Scotland. Nine separate locations were completed within contract time, budget and to full client satisfaction.
Works include forming concrete ramps with handrails; disabled parking bays, improving lighting levels, fitting suitable DDA compliant ironmongery, alarms etc. Clients include First Scotrail and NHS Facilities Management.
DMCS Ltd upgraded existing car park facilities at Keith Railway Station for Scotrail.
The existing car park had insufficient parking capacity for this busy station on the Inverness to Aberdeen railway line. Within a 12 week contract, the existing area was reconfigured including surface finishes, drainage, lighting and security CCTV installation and upgrades, to increase facility from 31 parking bays to a total of 88. A new bus shelter and associated hardstanding was also installed. Works were completed on time and to budget.
