TGB providing design services to Texas Gonzales & Northern Railway
Texas Gonzales & Northern Railway (TXGN) has again selected TGB Group for design services in support of its railcar storage yard development project that will add capacity to its already sizeable yard in Gonzales, Texas.
We’re proud of our long-term relationship with TXGN and are honored to have been chosen to bring our cutting-edge services to this exciting railcar storage yard development effort. Our team will provide survey, design and construction oversight activities for a new yard expansion that will give TXGN an additional 400 car spots for a new client they recently secured.
TGB Group’s bottom-line objective here is to create greater efficiency and cost savings for TXGN. We’re partnering with Shackelford Construction & Hauling, LLC of Yazoo City, Miss., to operate the project as a design build.
Texas Gonzales & Northern Railway tasked TGB with providing a plan to complete the railcar storage yard development expansion in a very short window, something we’re quite familiar with. We will be feeding up-to-date design specifications to Shackelford each week in order to speed up the process. This will allow construction to start with minimal design work completed and continue quickly, cutting more than 45 days from a traditional timeline.
