Overview:

Now open to the public, the redevelopment of Manchester Victoria Station has brought a much brighter, modern and spacious transport hub to the City.

Severfield's scope of works covered many important aspects on this project, from creating the award winning Tekla BIM design, to providing and installing the iconic steelwork structure.

Working closely with the main contractor at weekly meetings, Severfield used site-based plans on a regular basis to show areas available for other site activities to continue, including access and crane locations. The carefully thought-out plans, also showed how the works for other trades would have sufficient time to be completed, prior to the key erection periods.

The 1,800 tonnes of steelwork was erected by Severfield operatives during 3.5 hour shifts (1:30am-4:00am). The construction could only happen during possessions and importantly, the isolation of both Network Rail lines and the transport for Greater Manchester Metrolink.

This project received the 2015 Tekla awards for the 'Total BIM Project' and the 'People's Choice'.
