From a footbridge painting scheme to a new station building and associated platforms, our highly collaborative teams will work with you to understand your specific needs, objectives and concerns. We aim to provide improvement, refurbishment and renewal solutions that will benefit your customers, minimise disruption and consider the needs of your neighbours and local community.
Seamless Integration of Services to benefit your Customers
Our experience of working in live rail environments and operational stations allows us to develop designs and deliver schemes that provide a better result for your passengers and customers. Our service lead solutions comprise improvements, refurbishment and new build schemes for Access for All projects, station buildings, platform upgrades and extensions, canopies, footbridges, at grade and multi-storey car parking, including all nature of civil, structural and M&E works. In addition to projects, we also operate dedicated Reactive and Planned Maintenance Services, with our teams on call 24/7 365 days a year.
Creative thinking, innovative access solutions and efficient use of possessions allow us to develop station solutions that meet complex and demanding programme constraints, with reduced risk and cost; as demonstrated through our selection of projects downloads…
“This is a great example of how we can improve stations for passengers at the same time as preserving Britain’s rich rail history. The station now has a better environment and ambiance which we hope will make a positive difference to passengers passing through it.” Richard Brien Network Rail Route Managing Director for Wessex.
Meticulous planning is key to our success in delivering structural repairs, strengthening schemes, replacements and new structures from footbridges, to steel framed depot buildings and complex under-bridges. Through a seamless integration with our designers and supply partners we will develop solutions that are tailored to your specific needs and sensitive to the needs of your stakeholders.
Clever Solutions to Access Unique Environments
Through our experience of delivering railway structures, we recognise that no two situations are the same and attention to detail is of paramount importance in developing a solution that provides a better outcome for you and your customers. Our learning has been gained from a portfolio of projects, planned and reactive maintenance works and includes the design and construction of; footbridge renewal and refurbishments, new and replacement over-bridges and under-bridges, bridge deck replacements, bridge refurbishments and strengthening, multi-storey car parks, depots and line side buildings.
From the outset we will establish a collaborative team that will work with you to develop a bespoke solution that takes full account of the surrounding environment and is designed with buildability and construction safety at the fore. Our scheme implementation includes the design and installation of temporary works, possession planning, phasing and access measures, developed through an understanding of the stakeholder and operational requirements of the live facilities and locations in which we are working.
“This was a first class project, bringing the ability to support Network Rails sustainability policy and environmental goals. Teamwork and pride stand out as a key to the success of this project, the project team and the depot staff working together in a challenging environment to deliver a significant development project while maintaining operational status.” Greg Hegan, Depot Manager
Earthworks, P-way and signalling
The delivery of any project on or around the live operational railway requires an absolute respect for the unique environment that is presented. This respect is never more evident than in our multi-disciplinary teams that will work openly in collaboration with you in delivering complex earthworks, permanent way and signalling solutions intent on keeping your passengers moving.
Emergency Response and Project Teams
Whether implemented as a planned project, as emergency works or as part of a parent project such as a platform extension or deck replacement, our approach to developing the right solution will ensure that we engage with you fully to achieve clear, timely and transparent objectives.
Our route work experience includes the design and installation of; under-track crossings, troughs, ballast boards, cabinet base structures, equipment buildings, track realignment and installation, new and relocated signals, overhead line and line side civil engineering works.
Innovative methods and stakeholder management are key to our success in providing earthwork solutions, often in remote locations, from simple retaining structures and soil nailing to complex grade separated junctions, embankment reconstructions and slope stabilisation. In addition to projects, our dedicated Reactive and Planned Maintenance Services teams are on call 24/7 365 days a year to mobilise emergency earthworks teams.
“The work Network Rail has been carrying out to re-open the line around Botley by mid-March has been impressive. They undertook a massive engineering task just to prepare the site before they could start dealing with three separate landslips along one mile of track. Lessons are being learned from the extreme weather and I’ve asked Network Rail to examine how the network can be made more resilient in future.”Rail Minister, Stephen Hammond
M&E and building services
Caring for your customers and stakeholders is at the forefront of our thinking when undertaking M&E and service projects in live rail environments. We recognise the need to gain a comprehensive understanding of existing services and controls to ensure we develop designs, programmes and phasing solutions that ensure the existing facility can operate unhindered by the construction works.
Integrated Knowledgeable Teams Key to Success
Through our specialist M&E design and installation teams we are able to work with you to identify service led solutions that provide long-term sustainability and maintenance benefits. Our M&E and building services experience include renewal, relocation, refurbishment and upgrading to lighting, power, CIS, PA/VA, fire alarms, CCTV, Help Points, and telecoms at stations and depots; as a planned project, as emergency works or as part of a parent project such as an Access for All Scheme or Station Improvement Project.
Our competent multi-discipline teams will work closely with you to understand your specific needs and concerns. We will develop a solution and provide a highly coordinated delivery that ensures a seamless transition from construction to user operational phases, through meticulously planned phasing designed around the needs of your customers.
“Excellent works completed over last few days at Clapham, all works ahead of schedule and we have even found time to safely assist our colleagues on an adjacent site by lifting in equipment for them, truly excellent teamwork here guys and high quality product that we are all proud of.” Mike Sandy, Programme Manager Network Rail
