Riggotts are excited to debut new lining work completed for returning clients VolkerFitzpatrick. The four-phase project, which began in early 2015, has been underway at the new Thameslink Train Depot in Hornsey. The Depot is part of a major Thameslink upgrade that will significantly improve rail services across London and the southeast. Riggotts won the contract, which entailed priming, cleaning and painting galvanised step edgings, from esteemed engineering and construction company VolkerFitzpatrick. The Riggotts team first cleansed the galvanised steel using a mordant solution, before applying a coat of Pro-Tect bonding agent to the edgings. Team operatives Max Stasans and Steven Bryce then painted these edgings with one-pack epoxy paint and chlorinated rubber for a highly visible finish, ensuring the depot meets applicable safety standards. Performing work at a new railway depot is no easy task. Prior to work commencing, the Riggotts team completed extensive paperwork and underwent comprehensive health and safety training. It is for this reason that Riggotts was the best choice for the project: with our reputation for reliability and a high standard of work, VolkerFitzpatrick knew the job would be finished to their specifications.
