Bombardier - Wakefield

Bombardier - Train Maintenance, Wakefield

Bombardier Transportation is the rail equipment division of the Canadian firm, Bombardier Inc. Headquartered in Berlin, the division is one of the world's largest companies in the rail equipment manufacturing and servicing industry.

Bombardier Transportation produces a wide range of products including passenger rail vehicles, locomotives, bogies, propulsion, and controls and offers a wide range of services.

The brief
Working with the M&E contractor, Gradwood, we developed an effective solution to meet the specific requirements of Bombardier Transportation's train commission sheds at Crofton in Wakefield.

The sheds, which would be temporary, presented specific challenges by way of an inflatable roof and sunken maintenance pits for access to the underside of trains.

The solution
We created a stand-alone system with its own controls that could be dismantled and reconstructed when the building moved. An oil-fired air handling unit was located outside to maximise the internal operational space. The building is continuously monitored for air quality, with the system purging exhaust fumes and providing free summer cooling.

Following the success of phase 1, Jet Environmental was uniquely specified for phase 2, which required the integration of the first facility with the second commissioning facility.

Specific requirements:

  • air quality sensors
  • free summer cooling
  • oil-fired AHU
  • temporary structure
