Trainwash - Kortrijk

Description 

As a replacement for the NMBS' existing "Carwash", Franki Construct has built a new facility that takes the track bundles into better consideration. Several other installations, which were necessary for maintaining the rolling stock, were also build, including an inspection chamber with a universal platform, a WC drainage installation, and new high-voltage cabinet.

Overview:

  • Civil engineering: inspection chamber, universal platform, carwash.
  • Utilities building: enclosed building shell for the carwash and WC drainage installation, installing and fitting out a high-voltage cabinet.
  • Hydraulics: inspection chamber drainage, carwash and WC drainage installation connected to the sewer system.
  • Earthworks: rail bed works for tracks.
  • Railworks: installation of the rails on the 350m of inspection chamber.
  • Road works: laying of an acces road to the utilities building and laying of service roads.

Since 1998 Franki Construct has been part of Willemen Groep, the largest family construction group in Belgium.
