The National College for Advanced Transport & Infrastructure
Doncaster has always had a rich railway history and is at the forefront of cutting edge developments in the rail industry. It is, therefore, no surprise that there are 20 major rail companies specialising in manufacturing, infrastructure, power supply and distribution and much more. However, it is also home to the National College for Advanced Transport & Infrastructure.
Why was this college built?
Opened in September 2017 as the National College for High-Speed Rail, the College changed its name in August 2019 to reflect the growing demand across the UK transport infrastructure industry.
Built on the strong values of safety, pioneering, inclusiveness, collaboration and excellence, the college is set up to provide training and work experience to learners aged 18 and above in all aspects of what makes a modern railway. This college, along with its twin in Birmingham, aims to solve the engineering, design, planning, manufacturing and construction skill gap that Britain faces as it looks to invest billions of pounds in modernising Britain’s rail network and improve the transport infrastructure. This new college has the capacity to train 1200 learners a year.
How did INTRAsystems help?
Much like the national college, we share similar values of safety, pioneering and excellence. Installing INTRAform Low Profile in this location helps to maintain safety by preventing dirt and moisture from entering the building and causing slip accidents.
With a pioneering low-profile design (Download CAD) INTRAform Low Profile entrance matting is not only lightweight but extremely durable. Combining this with our Elite Polyamide 607 Anthracite Fibre creates a highly absorbent barrier matting system. This ultimately prevents wear and tear on internal surfaces and protects the floor by reducing the ingress of dirt and moisture into the building. This ensures the building maintains an excellent visual appearance and helps the building management keep cleaning costs to the minimum.
