Delivering Requirements

Consultancy Solutions

Whether it is a tunnelling, surface transportation or mining project, Clayton have the expertise to advise, analyse and deliver the most efficient, safe and compliant rail haulage systems.

Our consultancy process typically begins with an initial discussion, either at site, or at one of our facilities located in close proximity to the project. The purpose of this meeting is to identify business requirements and determine a scope for the work required.

The range of work undertaken by our team ranges from a single day of advice through to a large scale project that starts with an initial design and ends with the supply and commissioning of equipment.
