Global Rail Services Ltd is part of the Global Infrastructure Group and is a leading Irish provider of design, construct and commission services for clients across a wide range of engineering and infrastructure sectors
Rail infrastructure contractor Global Rail Services was awarded accessibility works at three railway stations on behalf of Irish Rail in August 2016.
Customers at Rathdrum, Mullinger and Leixlip Louisa Bridge Stations are now benefiting from Global Rail Services’ extensive experience in delivering construction solutions that enhance and improve their passenger experience.
The project was successfully completed, with key project milestones being met and a high quality end product to match, with Global Rail Services effectively managing and delivering the full suite of stakeholder expectations.
The works include complex in-situ civil engineering works, temporary works, roads and pavings, as well as rail engineering activities in respect of upgrading station platforms and railway pedestrian access. Global Rail Services also used its full infrastructure contracting experience to manage and deliver the interface between the highway and railway authorities.
The works were completed in a phased manner, with a final completion date of February 2017. To ensure that each milestone was achieved, Global Rail Services prepared detailed programmes and schedules and provided a dedicated and co-ordinated approach to project management throughout the works. Liaison with a myriad of stakeholders, along with a collaborative approach to these works, has paved the way for a professional delivery that has met and exceeded expectations.
Procurement of long lead items and contract approvals has formed an integral part of the project success. Global Rail Services has used its rail engineering experience to deliver a fully managed multi-disciplinary rail project to the delight of the client.
