Rail Depot Design Services

Emeg’s design centre of excellence is based in our Manchester office. The team consists of professional engineers with a skill base encompassing Electrical, Mechanical and Communication disciplines for building services. With the experience gained and the foundation created from our rail and construction industry background, we have the ability to resolve problems of construction design with viable and cost-efficient solutions, catering to clients within all branches of engineering construction.

The team’s extensive experience in Building Services design, from the conceptual stage to site installation, include Electrical, Mechanical, Plumbing & Telecoms.

Through Emeg’s proactive and strategic approach to Building Services design, we are able to produce solutions that whilst highly sustainable, also represent exceptionally good value for money. We pride ourselves on developing and producing design strategies, in conjunction with structural engineers and architects, to provide energy-efficient, cost-effective, multi-service designs where required.

Electrical Services Design

Emeg has the in-house capability to design electrical systems from 110V and below through to 33kV. The more usual electrical systems that Emeg design are HV, MV and LV distribution, traction power distribution, internal / external lighting and emergency lighting, platform and car park lighting, depot and high mast lighting, general power and the like i.e. all aspects of electrical works found in stations, depots and the general rail infrastructure.

In addition, Emeg’s designers provide the electrical designs associated with Emeg’s products such as shore supplies, carriage wash machines, CET, safeNet™, etc.

Mechanical Design

Our main focal points of mechanical design are heating, ventilation and air conditioning applications. We can provide bespoke heating solutions to cater for the exact requirements of the client and end-users. This is typically coupled with a strategic ventilation system, resulting in a fully-automated scheme controlling heat and air distribution through the building.

On the other end of the scale, we offer solutions for the more user-orientated commercial facilities, i.e. office blocks, station buildings and depot management suites. Occupational comfort tends to be the primary focus for these developments, where our detailed assessments enable an appropriate design solution to be installed.

Telecom Services Design

Our telecoms design engineers can offer the complete package from design conception, approved for construction detailed design and CAD drawings. Emeg have expertise in IT and Telecommunications Hardware, Software and Networking services.

We specialise in design and installation of a variety of Telecom Voice and Data System Solutions.Certified Technicians work directly with clients and end users on complex requirements relating to the design of new installation and initial implementations. Emeg is committed to providing a dedicated, efficient and reliable design service without compromising on quality.

Depot System Design

Emeg has the in-house ability to provide complete turnkey packages for all Depot Systems, including all accompanying M&E works depot wide and within the various system plantrooms. The design and construction elements of the business have extensive experience in Depot Protection Systems (DPS), Carriage Wash Machines (CWM), Controlled Emission Toilets (CET), fuel dispensing systems, oil dispensing systems, coolant dispensing systems, AdBlue dispensing systems, automatic sand dispensing systems, tanking water dispensing systems and hot & cold-water systems, to name but a few of the depot systems Emeg has vast experience in providing.

All of Emeg’s systems can be tailored to the client requirements and the specific constraints of site or location. Through experience, Emeg has found that individual depots reflect bespoke regional requirements throughout the national Network Rail infrastructure and Emeg’s ability to accommodate and manage local aspirations whilst maintaining national standards proves essential.

Emeg has been involved in various Network Rail services rollout programmes, such as the Northern Hub Electrification programme, to deliver fully operational train maintenance depots to service new and upgraded rolling stock and assets. The design team is involved from the initial concept stages through to depot handover and ensure that the original quality, safety, programme timescales and budget aspirations are maintained.
