This design and construction of new depot and engineering hub to expand Stagecoach’s facilities and enhance its offering to its passengers and engineering staff
Our work with AC Lloyd and Stagecoach included the construction of a bus depot comprising the following:
Workshop, chassis wash, bus wash / fuelling lane, offices, stores and ancillary accommodation, associated landscaping and parking.
The new facility and associated systems are state of the art and an improvement upon their former facilities in the town.
The Bus Wash Facilities can recycle 85-90% of the wash water whilst the main bus depot has been designed to ‘Building Fabric First’ principals and will save the
client on energy bills whilst reducing CO2 emissions — a key goal of the Stagecoach Group.
The maintenance pits installed were constructed using Off Site Manufacture. This saved considerable time in the programme as we were not required to create additional formwork or heavy reinforcement. The maintenance pits were simply installed onto concrete pads, levelled and anchored down before a concrete pour took place.
"This development will give Stagecoach the opportunity to create a state-of-the- art depot in Trident Park from where they will run their local operations,”
“This will mark the completion of the Trident Park Development following the recent development of a new teaching facility for Warwickshire College, and the Trident Business Centre, both of which were successfully completed last year.”
He said: “It is also a very good news story for local businesses. Deeley Construction, who are based in Coventry and have worked extensively in the Leamington area, have won the depot construction contract.
“The two companies worked together recently on the College building and the contract went extremely well. The legal work was undertaken by Wright Hassall who are a stone’s throw from the site while the two agents – Bromwich Hardy and Avison Young – are also both local which really does underline the strength of the professional sector in this area.”
