SYSTEMS INTERFACE MANAGEMENT
Progressing construction works in the operational environment requires comprehensive planning of cabled infrastructure. Lack of attention to this interface can result in delay, system outage, poor stakeholder relations and loss of reputation.
We deploy specialist engineers into construction client teams to address this risk. Case Studies >
Typically, they acquire a detailed picture of the existing infrastructure through record review, survey and consultation with asset owners. In tandem they assess the proposed construction (ie ground works, demolition, piling, building works etc) by reviewing the design, programme and methodology. From this process we can determine a project life cycle impact allowing us to challenge and champion beneficial changes. We can also minimise enabling works by planning it as a series of linked stages thus avoiding a piecemeal approach.
By bringing these strands together under one leader, often referred to as a 'guiding mind', we identify important critical paths and cost-reducing initiatives for the project.
We empower our clients by bringing forward critical decision making and supporting with cost/benefit analysis to help them create the best strategy. We often provide this service at project development or ECI stages to help make cost forecasts more accurate.
We manage scenarios where the infrastructure has multiple-stakeholders providing them with vision and continuity. We focus on relationship building by regular communication and representing their interests.

Our Consulting Engineering division provides professional services for telecommunications, building services and associated railway systems.
CONTROL ROOM DESIGN
We recognise the operation of a control room has critical implications which create higher demands on engineering than for other built space.
SCADA & SMS
We have designed, specified and delivered SCADA and station management systems for a wide range of different applications on surface and underground rail infrastructure.
We have a large team of industry professionals who we can deploy to help support and deliver rail infrastructure projects.

Fourway designed and delivered the Kings Cross Station Regeneration Programme's telecommunication requirements through a series of contracts. Fourway master minded the entire systems migration for the Programme, providing a 'guiding mind' to ensure all strands of this complex project were brought together.
Fourway supported multi-discipline designer Halcrow (CH2M Hill) to help deliver design to RIBA C-E for the Vauxhall Station Congestion Relief Project. Our brief was to deliver the Communications engineering as a seamlessly integrated element of our client's organisation.
Fourway worked as an integrated part of the delivery team within the Costain Laing O’Rourke joint venture. The scope of our role included managing design and delivery of £2M interim station facility. This work stream ran for approximately 2 years and was crucial to delivering the overall programme.
Fourway worked as an integrated part of the delivery team within the Costain Laing O’Rourke joint venture. Over 4 years we provided enabling works strategy and delivery for the multiple phase construction sequence where the station had to be kept operational at all times.
