Trueform were selected by GTR in 2016 for the design, manufacture and installation of bespoke passenger waiting shelters at a number of GTR-operated rail stations, including Flitwick, Pevensey Bay, Wivelsfield, Waddon and Kenley.
The works were split across two separate contracts (one contract for Flitwick, one contract for the remaining locations). Trueform worked closely with GTR to design and develop a range of station platform shelters, bespoke to each location, reflecting MTR Crossrail’s requirements.
Each shelter contains integrated features / customer furniture such as seating / perch seating, LED lighting and automatic doors, reflecting MTR Crossrail’s requirements.
Trueform collaborated closely with GTR throughout the design detailing stages, with regular client meetings ensuring continuing customer input throughout the process. All design detailing was undertaken in-house, with each design fully bespoke for each location.
Material samples and prototypes were produced to ensure each product fully met the design intent. Once client-approved, the BoM for each item was finalised, and manufacturing took place fully in-house according to the agreed project programme.
