The new Permanent Way Building was constructed on the site of the former Guinness Factory in Belfast. Due to the ground conditions it was required to install 225 dia driven piles to depths of 16-20m over the foot print of the building. The build itself was constructed by concrete ground beams, pre-cast concrete slabs, structural steel work and wind post’s, traditional block and brick built walls with Weber Pral D spray on render and aluminium doors and windows. Internally Isocrete K Screed fast drying floors were placed and Altro resin flooring & wall finishes used in all wet room areas. The new building will become a central base for all of Translink’s Permanent Way staff and operations in the Belfast area.
