With the increased investment to improve the UK rail network, Sweco’s transportation teams are well placed to assist both Network Rail and the Train Operating Companies (TOC) to deliver the current investment plan and to enhance the overall rail experience for all their customers.
Sweco’s engineers are highly experienced in the Network Rail Governance for Railway Investment Projects (GRIP) process, with a specfic focus on delivering railway structures, station improvements, new platforms, track stabilisation, geotechnical solutions, M&E and CCTV systems in the rail environment.
Working in the rail environment requires a mulidisciplinary approach, and our team are highly experienced in leading Interdisciplinary Design Reviews (IDR) to ensure cross discipline holistic design solutions are delivered. With the introduction of BIM this is now undertaken within a 3D design environment.
