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
Having commenced their first framework for Irish Rail back in 2006, Global Rail Services are now working on their third consecutive four-year railway agreement for both the construction of station cark parks and platforms.
As one of eight current preferred contractors, Global Rail Services have maintained high levels of customer satisfaction for their performance, consistently delivering a high quality service and as a result have been awarded works in excess of €15m to date.
Civil Engineering is at the core of Global Rail Services’ offering. The company have constructed new station car park & Platforms facilities and built and upgraded many station new platforms to both increase capacity, and to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), across mainline and metropolitan stations throughout Ireland.
These works also encompass electrical, mechanical, CCTV and telecommunications installations and upgrades, where Global Rail Services are able to call upon their in house M&E department to provide the necessary engineering and delivery support.
It is this turnkey solution that has enabled Global Rail Services to provide comprehensive project solutions – providing Irish Rail with contract surety.
The works formed a fundamental part of the Irish Rail’s programme to improve passenger experience and increase capacity, at both mainline and metropolitan railway stations throughout Ireland.
The scope for the car parks involved the complexities of working adjacent to a live railway station and required professional community engagement to ensure that patrons and stakeholders were fully informed before and during the works.
The platform works involved close liaison with Irish Rail’s railway systems signalling team and also their track infrastructure engineers. Although, Global Rail Services undertook any associated track modifications as part of another framework with Irish Rail for Permanent Way.
