Designed to allow increased capacity on station platforms, our modular platform system is built off site, significantly reducing installation time and labour compared with traditionally built platforms.

Modular Train Platform Extensions

Stations must be able to accommodate an increasing requirement for longer trains and a rise in passenger numbers.  Our modular platform solution, is designed to support both these increases, while minimising impact on station operations during installation. 

Our service includes the design of the platform, complete piling and foundation works, installation of the transfer structure and the installation of the platform slabs to the align level. 

As the platform extensions are constructed off-site the requirement for wet trades is removed and less waste is generated, less transport and labour means reduced carbon waste, reduced installation times mean less time is spent on track in potential hazardous conditions and together with the cost savings that off-site prefabrication brings, this system provides real advantages to the railway infrastructure.
