Global Rail Construction Ltd is a Principal Contractor and a leading UK provider of design and build services to clients in the rail and transportation sector.
We are delighted to announce that Global Rail Construction Limited’s design team, have been awarded a contract with Alstom covering the GRIP 4 civils design for the Swinderby Resignalling Scheme. The design programme is now underway, with Scheme Plans and Level Crossing Ground Plans due to be submitted in July and the completion of GRIP 4 in September 2020.
The team have successfully supported Alstom on a number of schemes in the past, including the Design and Build civils programme for the East Notts Modular Resignalling Scheme GRIP 5-8 works, which covered eleven Level Crossings.
The Swinderby Resignalling Scheme comprises the Resignalling and Recontrol of the Swinderby Signalling area. It will include the conversion of 4 Level Crossings and the Renewal of Swinderby Road AHB to AHB- X.
GRCL’s GRIP 4 Civil Design works will cover:
The GRIP 4 design submissions for F001’s and F002’s will be grouped in accordance with the technical content i.e. signal bases will have their own submission, level crossing ground plans will have their own submission and at each design stage an IDC meeting will be carried out.
The design programme will be directed and managed from award to completion by the GRCL’s Design Manager. The Design Manager and Design team will be supported by Head Office resources. The team will be supported by a Ground Plan Designer, who will be embedded into the Civils Design Team. This will help to ensure that the ground plan AIP submission will have considered the necessary civils elements, eliminating the potential for issues that can occur when the design processes are separate.
