The Project

SFC Midlands designed, manufactured and installed handrails, open mesh flooring and staircases as part of a new train maintenance depot worth over £80 million.

The contract included over 1700 square metres of galvanised flooring mesh, 11 access stairs, 14 access ladders and over a kilometre of GRP access handrails. Also included were a large number of one off items including trench covers, armco barriers and keeklamp handrails.

SFC worked closely with our client Cauntons as well as the main contractor Volkerfitzpatrick to develop working solutions within budget and all completed within a tight programme.
