The Emu Plains Station Upgrade has been built using many different styles of structural and finishing materials. Great care was required to ensure the installation suited the materials used with minimal visual impact. This included cable access to the stand alone station canopy where no access was designed for lighting, power, PA, CCTV, station clocks, and communication cabling.
It is a credit to the site team for the quality of installation where extensive use of steel conduit was used throughout to meet RailCorp’ standards. With the restraints imposed to the heritage station building, no conduit was permitted or installed to the exterior of the building, where designs for cable reticulation pathways had to be approved throughout.
The Heritage Building has remained unchanged, despite the upgrade of Power, Communications, and CCTV, with the existing surface mounted supplies removed to additionally enhance the building.
On final inspection, Jim Hatz and Associates noted that this project was of a very high standard, with a comment to our client of “a brilliant project”, a comment we take with pride considering Jim Hatz’s long involvement as an approved RailCorp Electrical Consultant and having completed an extensive number of railway projects.
