Expertise: Civil Engineering
Pod-Trak undertook successful operational delivery of the civils aspect of the sidings reconfiguration of seven roads; this included all deep drainage and cross track drainage which involved “through the box” trench-box utilization, construction of UTXs, all formation grading and tying into existing levels, geotextile, OLE bases, caissons, bottom ballast and brushed-finish reinforced concrete walkways with cast-in Cubis Multiduct service routes and Cubis Stakkabox chambers.
These walkways were of two varieties; 1.5m wide driver walkways and 2.5m CET aprons, all at 450mm thick, which required careful interfacing with the CET pipework and furniture installer. Further interfaces with the M&E contractor and muck-away via engineering trains and conventional muck-away lorries required a great level of planning and coordination with the client on a daily basis.
Contract works were completed a week ahead of Pod-Trak’s target programme and over a month ahead of the client’s latest revised programme.
