Capita's building surveying team in Stockport worked with the client to restore the three-storey 1870’s grade II listed building to a structurally stable core and shell whilst retaining key historical features.
Mytholmroyd station was a Victorian 3 storey building suffering with dry rot and structural defects. We provided site drawings structural engineering, principal designer, building surveyor, project management and quantity surveying services throughout the design and construction period.
Initially the building was made structurally stable with new floors, strapping, mini piles and steel support of an overloaded cast iron beam and replacement of a Bressemer beam with replacement members.
Restoration works included, renewal and restoration of sliding sash windows and doors, restoration of stairs and former ticket office and external masonry repairs and pointing, new cast iron gutters and downpipes. Internally plaster cornices and fireplaces were restored.
In December 2019, the project was awarded the Railway Heritage Trust Conservation Award at the 2019 National Railway Heritage Awards. It was recognised for showcasing a real passion for restoration work and an ability to understand the objectives of the original railway builders and architects.
