MMC for Infrastructure

Lightweight and lean flat pack products for rail

Working with the fabrication industry we developed a light weight flat pack system for over cladding degrading rail infrastructure in highly constrained locations.

The product is comprised of folded aluminium sections which, when clipped together, form a rigid weather protecting and insulated skin. Each panel is light enough that the product can be assembled on site by hand negating the need for heavy equipment.

The solution gives the existing building stock, which is extensive, a new lease of life while improving performance and reducing energy costs.

The assembly can be dis-assembled at the end of its cycle and utilised elsewhere, in a circular fashion.
