Network Rail teams up with Atkins and CH2M Hill for international work

Network Rail has revealed that it is to form alliances with Atkins and CH2M Hill as it bids to win work overseas through its new international rail consultancy business.

Network Rail Consulting has been created as a subsidiary of Network Rail and will operate outside the UK, offering consultancy services across the full spectrum of Network Rail’s expertise.

It has chosen Atkins and CH2M Hill to help it win work in its initial target markets of the USA and India.

It said there will also be opportunities to team with other consultants elsewhere. Markets where Network Rail Consulting would be able to carry out work as sub-consultant to alliance partners include Brazil, northern Europe, the Middle East, the Far East and Australia.

“We believe we have much to offer international clients and look forward to working alongside our partners to demonstrate the best of British engineering and ingenuity overseas,” said Network Rail Consulting managing director Nigel Ash.

“Network Rail has internationally-valuable experience in developing innovative and pioneering approaches in asset management, and the successful delivery of large and complex capital projects, such as the Kings Cross redevelopment and the first stage of Thameslink.”

“This collaboration offers clients an unrivalled partnership to deliver innovative and practical solutions for the asset management and enhancement of the railways in North America,” added CH2M Hill European transport business group director Mark Thurston.
