Structural Soils has launched a new integrated site investigation and supporting service for the rail industry to offer turnkey solutions for all aspects of rail-based surveys.
According to Structural Soils, Rail SI and Rail SI+Plus provides a unique coordinated site investigation package from a single supplier.
The company has said that the division was developed because it recognises the importance of clear communication and planning when completing complex rail-related work.
Under the new division Structural Soils will now offer future projects full site investigation capabilities with the addition of wider, bolt-on services, including geospatial surveys, ecological surveys and asbestos management. The company has said that these integrated services represent a first in the industry for rail site investigations and are the most efficient means of completing rail-related surveys.
“These new services will enable us to mitigate the complex, multi-faceted nature of rail-related surveys and provide effective solutions to the challenges that clients face,” said Structural Soils director Jon Bassett. “By offering collaborative services from a single supplier, we can ensure that clients will have minimal reliance on multiple, subcontracted services and thus greater project control. This will improve project health and safety standards, and ensure that work is completed in a timely manner.
“This service means that clients will reduce track possession costs, increase economic value and maximise limited windows of opportunity to obtain important data from the rail environment.”
Structural Soils has said that it, and its parent company RSK, have worked on numerous large rail schemes including the HS2 Phase 1 ground investigation framework, the Filton Bank four-tracking project to electrify the Bristol Patchway Station to Bristol Temple Meads line, the Edinburgh to Glasgow Improvement Programme and site investigation work for the electrification of Queen Street Tunnel, Glasgow.
