Railway Engineering

Richter has vast experience and knowledge in all design aspects relating to the rail network having worked with many major clients and contractors in this field. We work hard to maintain the strict standards required by the RISQS qualification we hold ensuring you, the client, of our dedication to comply with the network’s stringent and exacting requirements.

We offer a complete comprehensive service from the initial site survey and ground investigation through to detailed design and completion of Form 001, 002 and 003 paperwork. Our experienced engineers have expertise in the design of all structural aspects of level crossings and take full account of all 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 have created detailed design and, when required, undertaken independent checking, for example, 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, screwpiles with steel grillages.

We have replaced several station Customer Information Systems including those for one hundred and seventy-six CIS for SW Trains and fifty at stations for WAGN and 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 and, as an approved consultant to London Underground, our designers were innovative in developing a 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 projects on track.
