    Cockfosters Train Crew Accomodation

    Thurston Group was chosen by Dyer & Butler as their principal offsite construction partner. This £2.50m, project involved the design, manufacture and installation of a Surespan volumetric building, to be used as a train crew accommodation for the drivers and support staff.

    One of the reasons Thurston Group was chosen as the superstructure contractor on this project was the company’s ability to manufacture and build offsite buildings rapidly, and at a more cost-effective price when compared with traditional building, while not having to compromise on delays that result from extreme British weather.

    The system core being produced from bright galvanized steel that has the strength and engineering of steel; while maintaining durability by eliminating oxidation and corrosion, that comes from the use of traditional mild steel, holding onto the quality and long life durability that is associated with Thurston Group. Moreover, making the building sustainable by integrating a number of renewable energy initiatives within the mechanical and electrical design to ensure an environmentally friendly building, as well as lowering utility bills.

    The building was completed to an exceptional standard both internally and externally, since Thurston Group maintain high standards, and the companies continued commitment to ISO 9001, Quality Management and Manufacture ensures consistency.

    Cockfosters was not the first building of this category that Thurston Group has undertaken. In 2013, Thurston’s completed their first train crew accommodation building for Tubelines at Northfields, for a sum of £1.73m completed on site.
