Example Civil Engineering Services Case Studies

3rd Party Works On Rail Infrastructure

The delivery of ‘On-Network’ works by 3rd parties or other stakeholders via ‘Asset Protection’ (ASPRO) assurance processes are becoming an increasingly popular vehicle of delivery. This arrangement allows the 3rd party clients more control over the design and delivery of schemes, helping control cost and minimise scope creep, whilst also ensuring that Network Rail Standards are adhered to, maintaining quality of the works and ensuring safety of the operational railway pre, during and post works.

ALO Management & SSOW Planning

ALO Design / Planning is required where any railway line open to traffic could foreseeably be fouled by any vehicles, including on track plant (OTP), construction plant, HIAB’s, cranes etc. or the load associated with them. At Equate Design, we offer in-house expertise for ALO Planning and have a wealth of experience in the management of these works to ensure that works are planned safely so that no part of any plant or materials will encroach into the kinematic envelope of a line open to traffic.

CRT Management

When track design and construction is being undertaken, the management of Critical Rail Temperature (CRT) is usually required for works which disturb the track support zone and could lead to problems, such as track buckling and this can impact on the day to day train operations on the infrastructure. CRT Management is usually required to allow for the safety of the railway to be assured during and post completion of the track construction works.

These works are delivered through collaborative working with the Network Rail Asset Protection Team and local Track Maintenance Team.
