Work is underway on the redevelopment of Reading rail station, which a contractor called one of the UK's "most extensive and complex construction sites".
The overall aim of the project is to improve train speed through the station, helping to reduce delays.
According to Simon Ambler, director of Yorkon, his firm's role in providing five buildings for a new depot is a logistical challenge.
"This has to be one of the most extensive and complex construction sites in the UK so collaborative working is essential at every stage," he explained.
"The off-site construction solutions we developed with Jacobs Engineering … will contribute to the aim of reducing the overall station redevelopment programme by 18 months through stimulating innovation."
VolkerFitzpatrick is conducting train care depot itself, which is being located to the west of the station and will be operational by 2013. The existing facility is being demolished to accommodate new lines for freight trains.
