We work with you as a part of your team.
Engineering Management and Assurance
Engineering management is critical to ensure the safe and efficient operation of their assets and networks.
ei work closely with our clients to ensure that their engineering projects are delivered to the required standards, to the specific requirements, within budget and on time.
ei has developed a self assurance model supported by our bespoke competency assessment matrix. This ensures that ei can provide a formal authority to work for all members of our team.
We provide multidisciplinary engineering management expertise to rail, transportation, and infrastructure projects. Involving the latest in systems engineering thinking, tools and best practice, and apply it practically and pragmatically alongside our design and construction experience.
We successfully define and integrate the technical, contractual, programme, stakeholder and construction interfaces to ensure our projects deliver quality output, to budget and on time.
Innovation & Development
The rail industry is constantly evolving and innovation and development are essential to its continued success. One of the key areas of innovation in recent years has been the use of 4D visualisation and planning techniques. 4D visualisation allows project teams to visualise the project and its progress over time, improving communication and collaboration between stakeholders.
Engineering & Safety Management
ei has extensive experience in managing system safety and authorisation for small and large-scale railway and public infrastructure projects. We work with the client, designers, assessors and regulators to establish pragmatic and compliant strategies and processes to ensure efficient and timely authorisation.
Engineering Training & Competency Assessment
Engineering training is essential for ensuring that staff members are competent and capable of performing their roles effectively within the rail assurance process. The right training environment and ensuring that staff are trained and assessed to be competent can provide numerous benefits.
These benefits include improved safety, increased productivity, improved quality, compliance with regulations, and reduced costs.
Railway Design & Management
Railway design and management are vital to the successful delivery of infrastructure projects. It involves the effective management of the design process from conception through to construction and eventual handover. The process is complex, and there are multiple stakeholders involved, including the client, designers, contractors, and regulators. Effective management of the design process is essential to ensure that assets and systems are safe, efficient, and sustainable.
Very Light Rail
Very Light Rail (VLR) – VLR vehicles are designed to be significantly lighter than heavy or light rail equivalents and the associated track and infrastructure can be less substantial as a result.
The last mile of journeys or deliveries, is inevitably the least efficient in economic and logistical terms. Very Light Rail has the potential to resolve the Last Mile conundrum.
ei are leading VLR consultants who provide bespoke consultancy packages for our clients.
Heat Straightening is a quick and versatile process for repair of impact damaged and misaligned steel bridges and other structures. The shape of a steel plate or section is adjusted with the application of small amounts of local heat applied in multiple pre-planned patterns and sequences. Using a small work crew with no heavy equipment required, these repairs can be completed at a fraction of the cost of replacement whilst material properties are maintained within permitted limits.
BS 5975 gives recommendations and guidance on the procedural controls to be applied to all aspects of temporary works. We at ei help clients plan, manage and mobilise all aspects of temporary works, ensuring all of the assurance is professionally managed.
ei provide expert rail and civil engineering management and technical support to our clients for their bids and tenders, bringing the latest in industry best practice, productivity and innovation to work winning teams.
