New Rail Shop

Brecknell Willis specialise in the field of electrification/traction for all types of transportation systems including tramways, metros and railways. They moved to their present site in Chard, Somerset just before the Second World War to escape the bombing in Bristol. The current building housing the production of their conductor rails is an original building and is inadequate for their current production requirements. The scheme completed in September 2011 comprises a steel framed building 90m x 35m and also houses office accommodation on two floors.
