Stimulating growth by moving people more efficiently

A key goal with this project is ensuring that historic structures live up to current loading limits.

Opus is providing a range of services including independent category III checks of complex structures, embedded resource to assist Network Rail in reviewing submissions and inspections undertaken by other consultants and also work packages for the inspection and assessment of structures.

A key part of the project is ensuring that the historic structures live up to current loading limits. Such specialist knowledge and expertise is critical to ensure that the asset is appropriately managed. 

Opus has around 20 years’ experience in structure inspection and assessment including many iconic structures, such as Barmouth Viaduct and Ribblehead Viaduct. We have several separate ongoing commissions for the examination and assessment of Network Rail’s assets.
