Challenges and solutions

We needed to design and construct the building over the existing trains which required extensive planning in production sequences to ensure the locomotives wouldn't be damaged during installation.

Being in close proximity to powerlines, all crane and scissor lift work obligated close attention. We also needed to account for underground services on-site during design and construction.

The Newport Railway Museum is located on a live VicTrack site which was a challenge in itself to ensure that installation of the building would not impede their daily operations.
