10 months


Stirling, Scotland

The work involved the removal of the existing roof glazing panels and the installation of new polycarbonate glazing panels. The main work phases included:

  • Installation of new high level drainage system
  • Repair and reline existing roof valley and eaves gutters
  • Surface preparation and painting to the existing steel structure
  • CCTV and jetting works to the existing below ground drainage system
  • Steel repairs on the areas affected by corrosion

One of the key constraints to bringing this scheme to site was the planning conditions associated with the Grade A listing status of Stirling Station.

To overcome this, Story working in close collaboration with Network Rail, our designers ARUP and key supply chain partner Twinfix, produced a design solution which ensured that the aesthetics of the James Millar designed station were not compromised by the introduction of a 21st century canopy.

The project was able to celebrate success and demonstrate best practice within the following areas:

A 3D printer was utilised to create a plastic model of the bespoke glazing bar which was used to expedite the approval process with Stirling Council town planners. The model also provided Twinfix with an inexpensive way of checking the dimensional tolerances of the glazing bar before going into full production.

A good working relationship was developed between the Story Site Manager and the Station Manager, allowing us to open up more work faces than had previously been permitted, this resulted in the completion date being eight weeks early.
