Queen Street Station, Glasgow

  • Demolition of 10,000 tonnes of existing concrete and rock
  • Construction of a concrete slab using 2500m3 of concrete
  • Installation of over 3km of drainage

Access restrictions due to engineering trains and other external factors resulted in the programme slipping during its first phase.

A nine day recovery programme was produced and a combined team of Rail Scotland, Rail England, Story Construction and Story Plant who put in a tremendous effort pouring 90 metres of structural concrete each and every day to finish the first phase on time.

This momentum was maintained for the second phase and the structural concrete was completed five days early.

The project was able to celebrate success and demonstrate best practice within many areas. We held weekly coordination meetings with the client and other contractors working within the blockade. These were attended before a formal award was given, in order to maximise time in the planning phase and to gain the most benefit from the coordination plans.

Unforeseen delays were also carefully managed in a proactive manner, enabling the original completion date to be met. Ultimately this project demonstrated the collaborative working of a combined team formed by all parts of the Story Contracting business.
