Innovation

Within SYSTRA, we innovate to meet our clients’ needs, prepare mass transit for tomorrow, and propose ever more resilient solutions. Transport infrastructure engineering has to adopt new technology, cater for new habits and satisfy new demands. To go beyond, SYSTRA commits to put people at the heart of design and improve transport systems efficiency.

A growing world population, the buildout of emerging countries, exploding megalopolises, asphyxiating inner cities. Now is the time to improve urban and inter-city mass transit.

Transporting millions of people every day, safely, efficiently and greenly is a major challenge, calling for optimal solutions. At SYSTRA, we develop innovative solutions that enable local governments and public contracting authorities to offer safe, suitable solutions to the needs of their populations.

We focus on a tripartite approach:

Blending transport systems desirably and durably into their environment

  • Developing more attractive, durable infrastructure
  • Tackling problems of acoustics and vibrations
  • Enhancing station atmosphere and the traveller’s experience

Optimizing costs

  • Infrastructure enhancement
  • Developing more affordable infrastructure

Operating the transport system more efficiently

  • Developing more resilient infrastructure, able to cope with natural and technological risks
  • Optimizing infrastructure maintenance
  • Managing energy

Deliver projects faster

We have developed a shared workplace which welcomes co-workers and clients: « La Fabrique ». Our “Fabrique” is a Fab-Lab for transport engineering. It offers our teams and stakeholders a place where we do everything possible to help new ideas and solutions emerge. Opening up to others also implies creating partnerships for research and innovation. We are looking to build new skills, alongside partners such as Lafarge and Samsung. There is no shortage of topics: inventing new viaducts built of Ultra-High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC), developing long-span railway bridges, imagining new technology for tunnel boring machines etc.

We also get involved in foundations and research programmes when their subjects converge with ours.
