It is widely acknowledged that rail infrastructure engineers and local authorities face a constant challenge in maintaining and upgrading their assets to meet modern day use.
Targeted actions are also needed to repair, rehabilitate, and strengthen rail infrastructure such as bridges and tunnels. It is also preferred that all necessary rehabilitation and strengthening construction work should be completed while maintaining the operational status of the facilities, i.e. without any or with minimum disruption to their daily use.
At CCUK, we specialise in extending the lifecycle and increasing capacity of assets such as buildings, station assets, bridges and abutments, supporting their use by passenger and freight rail for an ever-increasing number of journeys. Established in 2010, we operate nationally from its headquarters in Hull, Manchester, Edinburgh and London.
What we offer beyond the expertise of most concrete repair contractors is an engineered approach to the restoration of concrete. We analyse the root cause of the degradation with our own structural engineers reviewing all the field conditions- this added value allows us to offer more of a long- term solution, rather than a concrete patch.
Our range of rail infrastructure solutions includes:
Innovative building strengthening- Advanced Composite Strengthening Systems
All buildings, whether private or public will require repair or strengthening work at some point during their life cycle. This can be caused by various factors, such as structural deterioration due to corrosion, change of use, an increase of loading demands, compliance with new design codes, design or construction errors and emergency repairs.
CCUK’s Tyfo Fibrwrap Systems are the only carbon fibre solution that meets the International Building Code® (IBC®) requirements.
In the last 20 years, Composite Strengthening Systems & technologies have proven to be a formidable solution to a variety of structural demands posed by structural engineers, designers and asset owners. It has the added benefits of being both cost and time effective. The system’s state-of-the-art material technology combined with purposely developed application methods, provide efficient structural repairs, rehabilitation or upgrades.
Examples of CCUK’s building strengthening solutions include:
CCUK’s Concrete Repairs division also offers specialist services tackling difficult repairs with innovative solutions including:
A huge scope of opportunity
As Network Rail continues to announce renewals and enhancements projects across various routes on the UK’s railways, at CCUK we are making preparations to launch our services to the industry. Discussions are already underway to provide protection and repairs to several assets in the North-West and we believe the scope of further opportunity for CCUK in industry is huge.
Works to renew ageing infrastructure on the railways has become vital to improve reliability for passengers and we believe our expertise can have huge benefits for the rail industry.
We fulfil the toughest requirements for structural preservation, corrosion related repair and rehabilitation and environmental protection. All rehabilitation construction is also carried out with minimum disturbance to traffic and normal everyday operations.
With the huge range of buildings, bridges, viaducts, stations and other major structures on the UK rail network requiring protection and strengthening, there is a massive opportunity for us in the industry.
Our insurance backed design and build service is backed by the knowledge and capability to facilitate a full technical specification for the procurement and implementation of any composite strengthening system. This full-scale package offers clients the peace of mind that their services will be delivered by highly qualified and experienced engineers.
