Heritage refurbishment and HAZMAT removal works at the Rail Journeys Museum, part of Werris Creek Railway Station.  Works were completed to the attached office and veranda and incorporated a roof restoration involving Heritage truss grafting. HAZMAT works included the removal of friable and bonded asbestos, lead paint, lead dust and synthetic mineral fibre. The HAZMAT works were undertaken on a live rail corridor on a working platform and within the working Museum. Rapid also carried out the upgrade and refurbishment of the first floor providing additional museum space and repairs, disabled access and bathrooms, termite repairs and structural defects. Rapid provided extensive Heritage advice and solutions to the client during the work and prepared CAD drawings relating to structural repairs and remediation, which contributed to significant time and cost savings.
