Waldeck have a detailed understanding of the key issues in relation to the development of stations and station infrastructure. We know that the movement of passengers and rolling stock in the safest and most cost efficient way, is key to the long term success of a station development. It is therefore vital to account for increasing passenger numbers and length of trains as early as possible in the design of these important built assets.
How we can help
Our team understand that the key opportunity to add value and minimise construction risk to an integrated rail and retail development is realised at the initial outline design stage. This is achieved by ensuring that key front-end design options are well defined, in order to maximise the available retail opportunity whilst also ensuring compliance with the operational requirements of a modern station.
Ensuring these elements are properly interrogated, well defined and co-ordinated ensures our team to create certainty for our clients and their projects. When followed through with good execution in the detailed design and construction phases, a commercially successful project can be achieved.
Utilising our expertise from the outset ensures solutions that:
- Successfully takes designs through the full Network Rail GRIP feasibility, design and construction process
- Maximises passenger throughput and future proof station developments
- Ensures successful interface and integration with permanent way and signalling design to facilitate connection into the rail network
- Delivers projects in operationally live environments without affecting the operational activities of any adjacent facility or process
