Heavy Rail

We have a long history in heavy rail haul projects dating back to the 1950s when our founding partner, Charlie Ripley, procured two challenging geotechnical jobs with Canadian National Railway. Through the decades, our teams have acquired extensive engineering and environmental experience in assessment, design, construction, maintenance, and mitigation through numerous linear infrastructure projects, specifically railways.
