Story Framework

Story and its strategic partner, FJD Construction, deliver improvement projects across the Midlands and further South as part of a £38m two-year Network Rail framework contract for structures work.

 FJD and Story completed their first collaboration project, delivering strengthening works to Snow Hill Tunnel in Birmingham

Awarded in late November 2018, Story & FJD Construction accelerated the regular timescales for project mobilization and commenced on site in January 2019. Works now continue on a portfolio of design and build schemes including footbridges, tunnel repairs and underbridges.

The scope of engineering repair work at Snow Hill involved:

 Construction of a strengthened shaft cap, reducing the stress induced to the crown from the shaft.
 Brickwork repairs to loose and hollow sections of the tunnel soffit and walls.
 Pinning and grouting to hollow brickwork.
 Re-pointing of open joints.

Story & FJD were able to demonstrate that we can deliver a successful programme with an extremely short mobilization period and deliver the overall scheme on time and under budget. The project was handed back to the LNW Route with zero defects.

The project team ensured that despite tight timescales and a challenging programme that safety performance was exemplary with zero accidents or incidents.
