London, 25th January, 2024- Capel C.S Ltd, a leading name in the construction industry, is pleased to announce the successful contract award by long-term client Greater Anglia for refurbishment works at Burnham-On-Crouch Railway station.  The construction contractors, who have helped transform an extensive range of rail stations across the UK’s railway network, have been brought on board to renew elements of the long-term canopy at the Essex-based station and give it a new lease of life.

Original Canopy for the Present-Day Climate

From the initial surveys and removal of redundant mechanical and electrical equipment, to the full scope design and build contractor duties, Capel C.S will transform the existing life-expired canopy at Burnham-on-Crouch and lead the project in alignment with the client’s requirements. The construction contractors will work carefully to carry out repair works on structure defects, whilst preserving the original foundations, and will also supply and install both temporary and permanent lighting on the platform.

In addition to the replacement of the existing canopy roofs and expired sections, the canopy will also see a brand new supply and installation of a man-safe system for its maintenance, as well as the replacement of its existing dagger boards with maintenance-free GRP (glass-reinforced-plastic) style dagger boards to honour the original style of the canopy.

“We are pleased to be restoring the canopy at Burnham-on-Crouch to improve the facilities for station users and the appearance of the station for the local community. Investing in upgrades to stations across the network is extremely important to Greater Anglia, demonstrating our commitment to providing excellent facilities and service standards for our customers,” says Simone Bailey, Asset Management Director, Greater Anglia.

Capel will finish all works to a modern finish, repainting the station building and canopy in alignment with Greater Anglia’s brand colours and DDA requirements, working closely alongside the GA team and Capel’s trusted suppliers to complete the project circa mid-Spring in 2024.

Thank you to our clients for trusting us on another great project. We look forward to sharing our project completion update soon.
