We were invited to submit concept designs for the replacement of the existing bus station walkway at Jarrow. Following various adaptations to the design proposals, we were appointed to manufacture and install two 11m long x 2.8m wide G2 shelters and three 6.5m long x 2.8m wide G2 shelters as well as to refurbish an existing office building by retrofitting a G2 style roof.
The project involved removing the existing high barrel walkway and various sections of the existing brickwork.
The new shelters had to incorporate GRP pad seating, flag brackets, timetable cases, LED lighting and provide facility for the installation of CCTV cameras and RTI signs. The refurbishment of the office building involved removal of the existing roof structure, modification of the supporting steel structure, repainting of all components, extension of the office floor area and installation of a new roof and side glazing, including new lighting and power.

Regular Health and Safety inspections were conducted by Nexus without incident.
The project was completed within a tight program whilst allowing normal bus service operation. This was achieved by completing individual bus stands before moving to the next one and re-directing the services. Close liaison with the client and the service providers was an integral part of ensuring passengers’ bus use was not affected.
