THAMESDOWN BUS DEPOT, SWINDON


This purpose built depot provides hardstandings, workshop and office facilities. We were responsible for full scope of structural services, including the design of the sub, superstructures, and external works.

The extent of the concrete hardstanding equated to an area in excess over 15,000m2. These aprons were reinforced using polypropylene fibres, which was found to be both cost effective and minimised construction time.
