Railway Engineering

Richter regularly works with major rail contractors offering vast experience and knowledge in all design aspects relating to the rail network. We work hard to maintain the strict standards required by our RISQS qualification, pushing ourselves to consistently comply with the network’s extremely specific requirements.

We offer a comprehensive service from initial site survey and ground investigation, through to detailed design and completion of Form 001, 002, and 003 paperwork.

Our experienced engineers have detailed knowledge of all design and structural aspects of level crossings, and consider Network Rail Line and Group Standards requirements in all areas of railway engineering.

The practice has participated in several important re-signalling contracts where we were asked to create detailed designs and, when required, undertake independent checking (WCRM and SWIM). Our extensive expertise covers a variety of design remits for signal and OLE foundation structures including reinforced concrete pad foundations, driven piles with concrete pilecaps, and screwpiles with steel grillages.

We have replaced several station Customer Information Systems including those for 126 CIS for SW Trains, and 50 at stations for WAGN. Our structural designers have also been responsible for the standard foundation designs for the GSM-R project.

We specialise in finding the right design solutions for railway engineering projects. As an approved consultant to London Underground, our designers developed an innovative system for vertical and lateral jacking of escalators to maintain alignment whilst still in service. We have also undertaken the complete renewal of several station lifts throughout the Underground Rail system.

We pride ourselves on keeping your railway projects on track.
