The site was essentially sandwiched between the main Newark road and the Newark Castle Railway Station.
From our early involvement with the project a sequence of erection was developed to eliminate the risk to Network rail operations. This involved direct coordination with Network Rail and visiting Network rail headquarters in York.
The sequence of erection and crane positions were carefully assessed and safety measures put in place. This included every column near the railway station being restrained with a wire rope fixed to an engineered bracket bolted to the foundations.
Small stable blocks were erected and the precast units installed using MEWP’s for access.This meant that every block was finished as erected with no requirement for larger cranes and additional risk to the railway operations. Erection of the structure including precast units was
completed in 10 weeks.
