Buckingham Coatings commissioned for cladding panel repair work
Our team was called in to repair and respray several damaged cladding panels at the railway station.
Working alongside a number of other contractors on the site, Buckingham Coatings operatives would be required to work on a challenging project requiring the repair and respray of several damaged cladding panels on two platforms.
Cladding remedial work in exceptional conditions
This project required an exceptional regard for safety due to the conditions in which our team was working.
The Buckingham Coatings team not only had to negotiate a close working relationship with several contractors involved in the railway station’s ongoing groundworks. We also had to conduct the job at night, when the line was closed, working at height.
Strict health and safety compliance
Our work to refurbish several cladding panels on the station platforms required us to work at height using scaffold tower equipment.
Our operatives hold Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ & Manufacturers’ Association (PASMA) tickets, which provided the necessary evidence of their full training in use of this equipment that suitably complied with the strict health and safety rules of the site.
Despite having to work night and around so many other contracted workers, with a little extra care for safety and coordination with the groundworks’ teams, we were able to carry out the cladding panel repair and respray works as efficiently as normal.
Cladding coating in requested RAL colour
Once the affected areas of cladding had the scratches and dents filled and primed, they were coated in colour-matched RAL7000 “Squirrel grey” colour by our paint spraying operatives.
Another successful cladding panel repair & respray
The cladding remedial works were complete in one night/ two days, successfully delivering to the high safety spec and with a high-quality finish.
