RED Scientific

SPaTS2 provides specialist technical engineering advice to Highways England for its £27bn Road Investment Strategy (RIS2). The framework is also accessible for projects commissioned by the Department for Transport, HS2, Transport for London, Office of Road & Rail, and Local Authorities.

TRL, Arcadis and Pell Frischmann formed the FUTRAN Joint Venture for SPaTS2.

In a transport and political landscape of disruptive change, the FUTRAN JV provides easy access to both breadth and depth of advice, research and consultancy skills. By seamlessly combining three organisation’s direct resources, with an extensive and growing community of supply chain partners including Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs), FUTRAN offers a genuinely differentiated professional service to fully support Highways England’s ambitions around customer satisfaction, getting home safe and well, within a transformative programme of delivery.

Each member of the JV individually leads and contributes to the global transport transformation agenda and together, FUTRAN will harness that learning and transfer knowledge into Highways England’s capability. FUTRAN will support its clients’ own transformation by helping to adopt and embed innovative, efficient approaches that lead to better outcomes across engineering, implementation and operation.

FUTRAN promises to be adaptable, easy to work with, collaborative and willing to learn. The JV partners are committed to continuously improving, increasing efficiency and creating customer value.

FUTRAN interfaces with clients via the Discovery Team, who will help shape the assets, operational models and solutions of the future so that they are safe, efficient, and meet customer needs.

RED is supporting FUTRAN in the area of Data Science including analysis, modelling and tool development, data visualisation and secure data systems.
