Railways

Altus has been providing services to the railway sector since 1985.  Our Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, and Geomatics Technologists use the latest electronic technologies to provide construction, engineering, and survey services to railway companies to support the planning, design, layout, construction, and maintenance of railway facilities.

Our specialized railway tools, state-of-the art surveying equipment, and 3D laser scanning technologies enable us to prepare accurate profiles of existing track as well as precise as-built plans for new railway facilities, road crossings, tunnels, platforms, and other rail facilities to support calculations for railway design, maintenance, and clearance requirements.

Our comprehensive equipment inventory and versatile field and office resources enable us to handle projects of any size, including small track as-built projects, road crossing construction support, and full construction support for freight rail projects, new terminal loading sites, LRT construction and expansion, and railway rehabilitation projects.

Altus supports time-sensitive track replacement projects that require both effective planning and night-shift surveys to minimize train downtime.

We also have the field, mapping, drafting, and programming resources required to provide infrastructure asset management support to railway companies.  Our crews have completed railway safety training programs and understand railway work requirements and safety issues.
