Sometimes a project comes along that’s truly unique – and building the Gastonia Amtrak platform and renovating the station falls into that category! This project required extra training for all 3 of our divisions as our General Contracting, Concrete, and Restoration Divisions were all heavily involved throughout the year-long project. Bartels Construction Solutions built the ADA compliant platform and renovated the station building. Amtrak representatives were continuously on site, all while the track and station were still being used by Norfolk Southern and Amtrak. And yes, that is our crew working within feet of a train chugging along at 50 mph down the track.
