Work// What we do and how we do it

Planning

planning

From initial consultation of the client's vision, through to planning application submission, Architrail is able to undertake all aspects of the planning process. We can highlight a project's constraints and opportunities in a formal feasibility report and clearly show the development stages of the project.

As part of the planning process Architrail values public consultation greatly and will meet with local communities, statutory consultee's alongside non-statutory organisations. Architrail is also able to take care of legal processes, landowner negotiation and consultation as well as planning authority liaison.

Design

Our trails are not only fun to ride, but also maximise longevity by using intelligent trail design, reducing the impact of degrading processes.

At Architrail, we have pioneered our own unique style of mountain bike trail design and are always innovating new creative trail features. Using contemporary technological methods such as GPS, GIS and digital design, clients can be assured that Architrail's design documents will be delivered with the utmost accuracy and clarity.

Construction

Architrail has an impressive track construction portfolio, including projects in challenging environments, sensitive locations and protected sites.

With longevity in mind, our construction methods ensure that trails remain in a high quality state well beyond the date of completion.

Making micro design decisions is an inevitable part of trail construction. As experienced trail builders, we at Architrail are able to make informed judgments unsupervised, ensuring that trails are optimised for their environment.
