Capability & Approach

Layer 2 Intelligence’s diverse team of engineers possess a broad collective skill set that allows them to take a big picture view of rail system architecture and develop an understanding of how best to plan, deliver, operate and maintain a new or upgraded network.

Developing or upgrading a rail network is complex and no project is ever the same.

We have developed a rigorous standardised approach to undertaking any rail networking project.

This approach has been finessed over time to allow us to most effectively integrate with our partnering consultants, system suppliers, installers and operators.

By abiding by a dependable, streamlined process, we’re allowed the freedom to concentrate on developing solutions to the many unique problems each and every rail project demands.

The primary components of our approach are as follows:

  1. Project Feasibility and Business Case Development
  2. Concept Design andProject Specifications
  3. Project Tenders
  4. Design and System Integration
  5. Project Management
  6. Testing and Commissioning
  7. Operation and Maintenance.
