Our support to the North American rail industry spans more than 30 years. Our technical, safety and logistics experience provides creative engineering and environmental solutions at both a programme level and in individual locations.
From moving passengers in densely populated cities, to moving freight across North America, from transit-oriented planning and development to clean-up of industrial rail sites, AMEC is a provider of environmental, engineering and specialty construction solutions to both government and commercial customers.
- Design Engineering
From public transit to freight rail needs, our design engineers are experienced in right-of-way acquisition, process engineering, structural engineering, and rail engineering. Our approach includes the handling of public relations and essential ongoing communication with all stakeholders.
- Geotechnical engineering
We are known for our design of economic solutions for safe operation of train transportation. Our understanding of railroad operations and geotechnical engineering principles allow us to evaluate conditions that can cause track profile, cross-level, and alignment problems, quickly and effectively. We provide emergency response roadbed stabilisation services and infrastructure repair. Landslide repairs and tunnel rehabilitation are two of our specialist services.
Our restoration services support cleanup of abandoned rail properties, management of spills from derailments and projects at existing yards and maintenance facilities. Our experience includes providing site characterisation, remedial design and remediation construction and environmental regulatory compliance.
- Environmental and compliance engineering
We have completed thousands of projects involving spill prevention and control, countermeasure and stormwater pollution prevention. Our consultants ensure that all our projects comply with current environmental regulations.
- Environmental permitting
Our specialists have worked on environmental permitting throughout many of our key sectors and multi-disciplinary projects. Our permitting experience in new capacity projects in mainline track and sidings provides valuable input for establishing valid construction schedules.
