CP6 Buildings & Canopy Refurbishment Framework

A five-year plan was devised to strengthen and renovate station structures in the Sussex and Kent regions. Frankham Consultancy Group provided civil engineering design assurance services for the implementation of over 30 refurbishment and strengthening projects of station buildings and canopies.

Canopy refurbishment works include replacing roof sheeting and glazing, upgrading gutters and downpipes, replacing valance and fascia boards, modifying them to accommodate new gauge clearances, installing maintenance fall arrest systems, and conducting a comprehensive reassessment for new rodding eye points in cast iron columns.
Our involvement in station building restorations such as Peckham Rye, which is a listed building, includes the preparation of design specifications, condition surveys, structural capacity verification, design of new aluminium roof cresting and brickwork repairs.

Frankham provided the following services:

  • Inspection: Conducting structural condition, dimensional, and photographic surveys, including investigation of Hidden Critical Elements (HCEs)
  • Survey specifications: Preparation of topographical and geotechnical specifications for use by third parties
  • Structural assessment: Review of OPSAP reports and conducting targeted re-assessments
  • Feasibility studies: Optioneering and modelling of structure alterations to aid client decision making process.
  • Design assurance: Form A/B/G for approval
