Project Description

Greater Anglia introduced a new fleet of trains into service consisting of two different manufacturers in a variety of classes.
SDS were appointed by Parker Technical Services to undertake external lighting calculations from concept to detailed design of the Fatality Wash area, Bogie Store, Service yard and replacement of the 25m lighting masts. The project required lighting facilities including the design of external walkways and the emergency escape route to the assembly point.

The £40m works convert and extend existing facilities, ready for a new fleet of trains

Project Involvement

Day and night time site surveys including a baseline survey to record illuminance measurements to enhance the existing lighting where required.

Delivered GRIP stages 3-5 as part of a combined Form 001/002/003 submission, including option development with the design team and Network Rail approvals, development of the single option and completion of the detailed design information
