One of the key challenges in engineering management is navigating the assurance process. Assurance is the process of verifying that engineering projects are delivered to the required standards, to an agreed set of safety and project requirements, within budget and on time.
It involves the identification and management of hazards, risks, assumptions, requirements, the monitoring of project progress, and the management of stakeholders.
To ensure the success of the project and to manage the assurance process, it is essential to use expert engineers, facilitators and managers.
Our team at ei have the knowledge, skills, and experience to lead engineering projects and ensure that they are delivered to the highest standards, ensuring compliance with all relevant legislation, project requirements and safety requirements.
ei has developed a bespoke self assurance model supported by a comprehensive, industry leading competency assessment matrix. Each of our team are required to go through our 'Authority to work' process prior to entering into a project position. This demonstrates to our clients and auditors that ei provide competent resources and supports our teams continuing professional development.

Innovation & Development
The rail industry is constantly evolving, and innovation, efficiency and development are essential to its continued success.
One of the key areas of innovation in recent years has been the use of 4D visualization and planning techniques.
4D visualization allows project teams to visualize the project and its progress over time, without having to undertake site walkouts, improving communication and collaboration between stakeholders.
