Platform Surfacing

Initial Systems Limited have specialised in platform surfacing over the last 20 years and have undertaken every element of works to new platforms, platform extensions and works to existing platforms. These works often have extreme access issues and therefore require a robust workforce supported by specialist and reliable plant and equipment to enable works to be completed first time without fail. All our personnel hold the relevant accreditations to work on all areas of the station confines. These works will often include the replacement of coping stones, replacement of tactile paving and the removal and installation of new surfacing, either Tarmac, Mastic Asphalt or Water Proofing Systems.


Tactile & Coper Replacement

Initial Systems takes a prominent role in the delivery of platform and walkway refurbishment. 

Our workforce, supervisors and management team have extensive experience in all activities relating to platform refurbishment, reconstruction and extensions, including re-gauging/replacing copers, installation of oversail blocks, tactile paving, platform resurfacing and patching, and pointing riser walls. In terms of reconstruction and extending platforms, we are experienced in both traditional - either in brick/block or precast - and cross-wall forms of construction.

We provide specialist services to undertake stepping and gauging works to the platforms. 

All station platform refurbishment projects have been delivered to meet programme and budget objectives.

Platform extensions and renewals include structural timber works and anti-slip decking replacement works, trestle platform renewals, including trestle leg encapsulation works, and trestle deck slab replacement.


Station Car Parks

We work with clients to deliver a high quality solution, using top grade materials to produce the most appropriate, safe and durable surfaces to meet our customers requirements.

With many railway car parks being adequate but not high quality, we are often called out to repair car parks to improve their condition, including the removal of pot holes and resurfacing of areas. Our qualified staff have worked on many projects within the railway industry and produce consistent, reliable results, even within challenging time constraints thanks to our 24/7 service. 

We cater for all of your groundwork requirements and are able to visit for a site survey before construction enabling our estimating to provide detailed quotations including quantities, specifications and project plans to provide complete transparency.
