At the start of the GRIP process we resolve the following questions and issues to enable us to reach a successful solution:
Fenix will identify any constraints in the projects so they can be resolved at a later stage. This is best done as early as possible to save potential major disruption. We will identify:
At this stage, we develop options for resolving the constraints identified in GRIP 2. These may include lack of funding, or encountering an endangered species in a particular area.
We present a first view of what the scheme may look like or the works that will take place. Outline designs are produced including but not limited to scheme sketch to scheme plan / technical interface documentation / operational requirement specification. The project is fully costed, the scheme is finalised and acceptance is gained. Safety is factored into the process and made a principal concern of the Fenix Signalling team.
Detailed Design including but not limited to:
Our installers follow the design from GRIP 5 making sure it complies to the standard:
Project Build / Signalling Installation including civils if required / Testing and Commissioning / Enter Into Service
Once complete it must all be tested by competent professionals.
If required, we can provide Technical Training / Maintenance Package, Development and Delivery. The result of the project is handed over to the operator and maintenance team so that they are able to sustain the work done to its full potential.
The project is formally closed with the contracts settled. Any designs will be issued back to Network Rail along with the appropriate forms.
Whatever your signalling or telecoms requirements may be, Fenix Rail Systems has the railway industry experience and expertise to make your project a success.
