A model that contains platforms in its full construction. These are elements such as platform oversail, front and rear plates, foundation support, consoles, coating, tactile tiles and safety zone marking. In addition, the model may also contain fittings such as lighting, benches, waste bins, etc., but these should be included in a separate model.
The model is designed as marketing for the contractor's work, and to ensure that existing elements and new or existing tracks have been taken into account. Furthermore, the model helps to ensure compliance with all TSI requirements.
The platform model is also used to calculate the number of elements, as well as to produce visualisations for authorities, citizens, etc.
Requirements for 3D modelling for platforms are set out in the CAD manual, Appendix 3, section 188.8.131.52.
