Rail Sector Processes

We conduct design reviews to value engineer solutions, offering alternative options during the design process or tender review stage. Our work can result in significant reductions in program and cost. It may even provide an opportunity to speed up the approvals process if simpler engineering solutions can be adopted.

We also undertake third-party design checks as part of the approvals process for Form A & B and 001 & 002 Approvals.

PTS training, CSCS Supervisor, HSG 47, and other health and safety courses are included in our expertise from engineer to director level.
