We connect and move people, goods and places
An increasing population needs an improved railway infrastructure, not only to aid commuting but also to transport goods as a more environmentally-friendly alternative to road freight. Here at Waterman, when we look at rail and mass transit infrastructure, we see much more than its component parts. We see its potential to connect people and goods by providing a safe, affordable and efficient rail infrastructure backbone across our landscape and within our urban areas. We have committed ourselves to value engineer safe and cost-effective rail infrastructure solutions in shaping rail and transport networks in ways that will maximise their connectivity and ease of use.
We have a strong track record providing market-leading expertise in all aspects of engineering and design disciplines. We offer our clients services ranging from initial project development and planning phases, through to full engineering design and documentation, construction phase services, as well as specialist advice with our design partners in operations, maintenance and management of rail and mass transit assets.
Waterman’s AUTORAILTM is a unique, highly flexible computer aided drawing and data management system that Waterman has designed and continuously developed since 1990. With over 10,000 miles of rail track mapped, the system is used throughout the railway industry.
We are also embracing the new technologies such as BIM and digital railways on our projects. New technologies impact how and where people live and work, and directly affect community needs. For Waterman, the key to success in this new environment is to harness imagination, link this to evolving digital tools and empower our teams to ensure rail infrastructure is future ready.
