In the 1980s and 1990s, Aarsleff gained expertise within electrification of railways, and Piling was busy driving piles for the Danish rail network. Within our staff we have experience of carrying out the CRE/CEM roles in a Civils capacity; this includes the experience of gaining approvals for piling works within the Track Support Zone (TSZ). We also have experience of planning, managing and implementing the ALO (Adjacent Line Open) procedures. Other relevant experience includes planning of lifting operations in a live rail environment.
Geotechnical and ground engineering is a discipline that plays a critical role in all Rail projects. Aarsleff’s work is a fundamental component of Rail projects, having provided the foundations and geotechnical expertise for many schemes in the industry.
Our engineers welcome the chance to work with project designers from early stages to ensure a value engineered option incorporating optimal performance to meet design load demands and programme. Aarsleff provides its clients with a comprehensive range of specialist geotechnical services required for the planning, design, and implementation of ground engineering projects, as well as to manage the ground risks associated with all Rail projects.
With tight timescales and deadline dates to be met, Aarsleff is able to provide the resources from our fleet of piling and geotechnical rigs combined with the UK’s largest stock of un-jointed precast piles to 16m in length.
Clients recognise the benefits of our driven piling and ground engineering solutions, where construction programme timescales are of the utmost importance.
