SNC-Lavalin Rail & Transit UK will be exhibiting and presenting at the upcoming Permanent Way Institution (PWI) North West technical seminar. The all day event is taking place at the Manchester Conference Centre, M1 3BB, on Thursday 25th February. More than 200 delegates are expected.
The theme of conference is ‘Modernising the Railway Network’: With unprecedented levels of investment planned in the nation’s railways over the coming years, the seminar will explore new techniques and technologies. It will also share lessons learnt from project teams across the UK.
Representatives from SNC-Lavalin’s Track Engineering and Survey teams will be present. The Track Engineering team offers a through-life design service from scope definition to detailed design, while the Survey team specialises in bringing the latest systems and technologies to deliver rail infrastructure survey and structure gauging services.
This event will be the first time the teams have exhibited since their company rebranded. It provides an opportunity to showcase their growing infrastructure capability to the railway track and infrastructure community. The former Interfleet business was acquired by SNC-Lavalin in 2011, and officially adopted the name of its Canadian parent this year.
A representative from SNC-Lavalin Rail & Transit UK will also be speaking at the conference. At 2.10pm, Phil Ransom, Head of Track and Survey, will present ‘Designing for a Optimum Outcome’. Phil will share lessons learnt from survey and track design development to ensure the best outcome from an enhancement project.
