Rail & Transit connects millions of people with jobs, medical facilities, schools, shopping, recreation, etc. Although investment in rail and transit infrastructure has increased, deficient and deteriorating structures are costing more and more to rehabilitate and many are struggling to maintain these aging and obsolete structures to an acceptable and serviceable condition.
Railway structures encompass a wide array of construction intended to support the track itself, such as; bridges, trestles, viaducts, culverts, drainage structures, retaining walls, tunnels, buildings, loading docks, passenger stations and platforms, fueling facilities, towers, etc., and the design of these civil engineering structures must be safe, robust, and durable, while ensuring operations and maintenance costs are reduced to a practicable minimum. They must be fit for purpose and be aesthetically pleasing.
Whatever your project needs, for the design, construction and/or maintenance of rail and transit infrastructure, SIMCO’s concrete experts have experience and knowledge of operational processes and regulatory requirements necessary for the effective management of these assets.
SIMCO’s comprehensive and integrated approach takes into consideration all elements of a given structure when selecting materials for specific applications; determining long-term performance requirements in accordance to the service environment; designing mixtures to facilitate good workmanship in construction; developing inspection and maintenance plans during its service life, and in achieving the design intent with low-risk construction methods and proven techniques and methodologies.
For over 25 years, SIMCO has assisted many different industries (Engineering, Transportation, Energy, Defense, Real Estate, Construction, etc.) in assessing the current condition of their existing infrastructure, in evaluating repair and rehabilitation strategies based on lifecycle cost analyses, and in designing concrete specifications for superior performance and optimum durability.
