Our infrastructure services capability uses the latest technology, management and engineering know-how to deliver rail projects and services to the highest standards of quality and safety.

Our construction services capability has been crucial in delivering large rail projects as evidenced by our work in the United Kingdom such as the East London Line, North London Railway Infrastructure Project and Southampton Tunnel. We provide solutions for signalling projects, overhead line installations, station development and major civil engineering works.

In Canada, we have also undertaken projects such as the five-year, £360 million revitalisation of Union Station.
