We can offer support to rail projects throughout the Network Rail Governance for Railway Investment Projects (GRIP) process:

  • GRIP 1-3 Project initiation – undertaking baseline surveys and feasibility through our environmental services
  • GRIP 3-4 Consenting stage – providing planning and environmental support to achieve the necessary consents for a development
  • GRIP 5 Post-consent – providing planning, environmental and engineering support at the detailed design stage
  • GRIP 6 Construction – providing construction related services during the construction phase, ensuring compliance and delivery of commitments
  • Operation – environmental monitoring

Arcus is ideally placed to work on rail projects.  Our multi-disciplinary, integrated approach means that our experienced environmental and planning staff have immediate access to colleagues across a range of disciplines with a strong track record in working on railway and railway-related related projects.

Our approach:

  • We add efficiency to projects through providing multi-disciplinary support under a single contract and through a single point of contact.
  • We add value to projects by looking for opportunities to reduce costs, signposting potential risks to programme early and by providing solutions rather than problems.
  • We work with our clients to ensure that their projects meet, or exceed all of their environmental commitments and obligations.
