Paddington New yard consist of two separate jobs with two separate clients, The New tarmac concrete batching plant which consists of 16m high aggregate bins and various different one off structures in order to support the conveyor.

The Conveyor starts from a top down structure called a Bottom Discharge unit which is being constructed under the bus deck.

The second stage to the scope of works is a 7m high level 8000 sq/m bus deck, the deck is set up on all different levels of ground including a cobbled ramp, the soffit of the slab is on a longitudinal and cross fall. This is made up of longitudinal beams sitting across primary beams. The deck is supported by high level radius columns which sit on top of 3m high walls.

On top of the deck we will be installed 30 tonne pre cast parapets units which stitch in to the slab. Whilst work commences across this very narrow but long site, access has to be maintained to Tarmac's concrete plant.
