Building: Adelaide Maintenance Depot Architect: White Ink Architects Building Type: Industrial Town: Belfast County: Antrim Country: Northern Ireland Collection: Architecture The Adelaide Maintenance Depot is a purpose built facility on a brownfield site, that serves Tranlink's new fleet of trains that will be delivered in 2012. The site is a 24hr facility that will provide stabling for trains, re-fuelling and train wash facilities along with a Maintenance and Cleaning Shed and associated offices and storage. The design concept was to create a hierarchy of buildings across the site, with the Depot being the main building and all other buildings would use the same palette of materials to create a cohesive identity for the site facilities. The Depot is over 200m long and is a slick linear box clad in silver metallic cladding. The interior is bathed in diffuse daylight through translucent Kalwall cladding. The associated Accommodation Block is articulated at first floor as a projecting, floating box in distinctive red cladding. It projects at high level beyond the main shed, its dynamic form referencing the trains within. The buildings base is detailed in simple blue grey brick, that is used throughout the rest of the site for ancillary buildings. Careful detailing and co-ordination of services has ensured that the box forms are uncluttered and bold. The project is due for completion in October 2012.
