Steelway’s involvement in the 2002 restoration of the Grade II listed Moor
Street Station in Birmingham was to be the beginning of the creating of new
opportunities for both Steelway and for clients alike. With increasing demand
for refurbishment and in particular replica and restoration work across the
network we have the ability to replicate design concepts from drawings that
often date back to the early Victorian age.
Clearly a proven track record in engineering was part of the clients belief in
Steelway and backed up with Link-Up approval with proof were all important
parts of the equation. The client had great ambitions and wanted his derelict
site to win national accolades for the transformation that was to come. There
would be no instances where inappropriate 'off the shelf' items would be
acceptable and with the Steelway approach client’s satisfaction is paramount.
Added to all of this we were aware of the real world where the need to work
within budgets and also to a programme is essential.
The result was a national award winning restored and enhanced station fit for
the 21st century but with all the qualities of a bygone age. Our work
commenced on site almost a decade ago and our involvement in the ongoing
development there continues to this day. In the intervening years our
reputation has grown and the scope of our own activities on other historic sites
have continued to trail blaze, resulting in many more award winning projects
throughout the country.
