Modernisation of Medium Sized Railway Stations in the UK

The Railway in Britain is undergoing a renaissance as passenger numbers have doubled in the last 20 years (4.5 million passenger journeys daily).  On the back of such demand, it is claimed that current investment is fuelling the biggest sustained programme of rail modernisation since the Victorian era.

Network Rail and Transport for London between them own and manage (mostly via operators) some 3,000 stations across Britain.  This talk will showcase the contribution of Structural Engineers to the modernisation of some of these stations.

The presentation will span a variety of topics ranging from BIM modelling and the use of BIM information, to design challenges faced by Structural Engineers in the highly regulated Railway Environment where the most efficient designs are not always the obvious choice
