Freight & Distribution
Freight and distribution is becoming an increasingly important element of sustainable transport.
As an organisation we can demonstrate extensive experience in the planning, design, maintenance and repair of intermodal freight terminals and other rail linked distribution centres.
Our experience and portfolio of freight and distribution projects continues to expand. In the 1990’s we acted as lead designers for a number of the “Channel Tunnel” terminals and more recently we acted as lead designer on a new £8m intermodal terminal in Grangemouth for TDG, where difficult ground conditions required the design of a fully piled transfer area slab and crane beams.
In 2015 we undertook design work in relation to a number of wagon and locomotive maintenance facilities for a major freight operator, and we also advised on the rail related aspects of the reconfiguration of Lynemouth Power station.
We are experienced in a broad range of related design activities and are able to liaise with Network Rail as appropriate to connect to the main line infrastructure.
The design, construction and maintenance of the heavy duty pavements associated with such facilities is an area where we have particular expertise, and we are able to offer pragmatic repair solutions to challenging projects.
