Railway engineering has been a core activity for many years; Roughton have qualified professional engineers and technicians who have significant, in depth, operational experience of large scale engineering projects in both surface and underground rail networks in the following areas:
Scheme, Detailed Design and Refurbishment of pumped, gravity and syphonic foul & surface water drainage for station and track systems.
Condition inspections & surveys for station and track assets.
Design of new, and modification/maintenance of existing station and track infrastructure.
Principal Inspections and load assessments for station, trackside and bridge structures
Implementation of grouting techniques to strengthen masonry and concrete arches, tunnels and culverts
Station & Tunnel waterproofing and ingress prevention.
Sub-surface cooling and ventilation systems.
Electrical equipment surveys.
Electrical design for lift upgrades
Station platform and concourse lighting
As well successfully implementing projects using traditional practices, Roughton have also provided technical knowledge in the forming of new strategies and working techniques within a number of areas of the railway infrastructure; these include:
Research and investigation into the use of new working methodologies.
Research and development of new materials.
Development of the use of aerial photography in both traditional and digital formats.
Asset data management systems.
