Prefabricated services corridor for a major rail terminus.

Bryden Wood and NG Bailey worked together to create a prefabricated services corridor to house all of the services for the station’s 12 platforms. The installation of the new services corridor needed to be complete without causing any disruption to train movements into and
out of the busy New Street mainline rail station, which remained open for the entire duration of the works.

Nicknamed “The Spine”, the services corridor measured 8m wide, 3m high and 126m long. At more than 300 tonnes it spanned the width of the station. It took a team of eight just three working weeks to install, reducing time on site, improving health and safety and cutting down on transportation and waste.

How we added value:

  • The use of prefabricated modules enabled services to be installed with no disruption to train movements into and out of the station.
  • Time on site was greatly reduced, improving site safety while reducing overheads and waste.
