BOMBARDIER TRANSPORTATION – WAKEFIELD:
Bombardier is the world’s leading manufacturer of both planes and trains. Their vast offering of products includes trains, rail equipment and control solutions for all market segments, as well as category-defining business jets and commercial aircraft. Atom Consultants were commissioned to design the extension and redevelopment of their Bombardier Prorail site in Horbury near Wakefield, where their class 220 Voyagers were built.
The manufacturing unit had to encase two 40 tonne electric overhead cranes, which operate in tandem to lift completed carriages weighing 65 tonnes and transfer them throughout the full length of the new production hall which was 125m in length and 16m in height. Our design also included new offices, roof replacement, modifications to door and window positions, service pits in the ground to access the underside of the carriages and drainage throughout the site, including entry falls to River Calder which included a large petrol interceptor.
” Atom Consultants were instrumental in bringing our ‘Virgin Cross Country’ manufacturing facilities into full production on time and within out tight budget constraints. ”

The Vauxhall Underground Station modernisation is part of Transport for London’s ongoing investment into London’s public transport network to support economic growth and employment opportunities.
The £36m project entailed reconfiguration of the station’s ticket hall to accommodate extra ticket gates and wide-aisle gates, as well as the refurbishment of the stations’ subways, ticket hall and stairs. The main part of the project was to make the access to the station step-free, enabling the station to handle 40% more passengers by installing a new shaft and lift between the ticket hall and platforms. A particular challenge was posed by the station remaining fully operational while the construction work took place between 2014 and 2016.
The London Borough of Islington had a requirement for a new sports hall to be used out-of-hours by the local community and it was to be built on the roof of and existing school- Winton Primary School.
