Kevin James, Project Engineer for Network Rail, made a presentation to a packed audience of Webb Yates Engineers about the transformation of Birmingham New Street Station from one of Britain’s most unloved stations to a light-filled, world class transport, shopping and community hub in the heart of the city.

The presentation included a brief history of the station and the background to the need for change, and the development of the concept design. Kevin discussed some of the major engineering challenges faced during design development and throughout the construction phases, the importance of collaboration between Network Rail, major stakeholders, delivery partners and sub-contractors, and the use of 3D and 4D modelling and Virtual Reality throughout the project.

We would like to thank Kevin for an inspiring presentation.
