Rail Engineering

Offering a full range of rail planning, design and engineering services to Class 1, short line, transit agencies, departments of transportation and other rail clients, our expertise ranges from preliminary planning and feasibility studies through final design and construction inspection. This includes service for rail freight, intercity passenger rail, commuter rail and industrial installations.

Our rail and transit experts bring broad industry expertise to every project and have extensive experience in the Class 1 and short line freight railroad environment and provide engineering and design for commuter rail, light rail, bus transit and para-transit operations.

We also deploy a wide range of measuring and mapping equipment including Track-based Trolley Systems that provide concise track alignment and clearance conditions. Our ability to generate highly accurate reports with real-time perspectives of track conditions enables clients to make informed decisions at the project site.
