Nobles were appointed by Arriva NW to upgrade their current facilities at the large bus depot in Speke, Liverpool in this £3.9m scheme. The project comprised of the demolition of existing vehicle maintenance buildings and the construction of new facilities.
A 1800 square metre bus depot with a steel framed structure and cladding to the roof and elevations and housing vehicle maintenance pits, office and staff facilities were constructed, as well as structures housing a bus wash, chassis wash and vehicle fuelling area.
Externally, the concrete hardstanding and service roads were renewed, and drainage was modified to accommodate the revised layout.
The project was carried out while maintaining current access for the ongoing operations of the depot, with careful phasing of the demolition and new build operations being developed to ensure the safety of Arriva staff while allowing the construction process to proceed with the maximum possible efficiency.
