Refurbishment of Main Train Shed Roof for Network Rail
Robinson Kenning & Gallagher produced a Listed Building Application with WYG on behalf of Network Rail for works relating to the refurbishment of the main train shed which comprises two separate barrel roofs separated by a central spine wall.
The Client brief required a detailed survey of the main train shed roof which covered detailed structural assessments and inspection together with a condition survey of both the interior and exterior fabric to the roof coverings.
Over a ten month period regular meetings were held with Camden Conservation Planners and English Heritage representatives, in order to relate the results of the structural investigations and to develop an acceptable proposed design for the refurbishment of the main train shed.
A presentation was made to Camden Conservation Planners and English Heritage identifying alternative design options for addressing structural concerns relating to wind tunnel test results, impact of snow (and snow drifts) and recommendations for improving performance of the bow string purlins.
