We have our own in-house Contractor delivery team capable of managing all aspects of civils, rail / underground, roads / highways and power infrastructure works. The projects we undertake are typically packages of work from £10k - £2m and focus on the management and overseeing of all aspects of the delivery and Construction phase
The team can also be engaged to provide a complete “one stop” service that starts with development (planning and design), providing a detailed remit / Specification, and then delivers and oversees the Construction phase.
Our Projects team have national coverage from our office locations in Manchester, South Wales (Cardiff) and London.
We undertake drainage investigation, cleaning, drainage repairs, including pipelining and pipe-run repairs as well as rebuilding catch pits. We also provide a complete D&B service installing new drainage runs and drain outfall systems.
We can provide all aspects of route clearance and de-vegetation works self- sufficient in labour and plant. We can also advise on all ecological and environmental issues and deal with specific or discrete problems (nesting birds, knotweed etc).
Level crossings and RRAP access
The team undertake all Civils works in connection with permanent and temporary crossing and RRAP installations. In addition, we maintain and inspect crossings and support Design and Specification development work as well. We install pedestrian crossing and walkways required within depots and sidings.
Troughing works and Troughing Protection
We have deployed troughing gangs installing new “runs” as part of various rail upgrade programmes and also install temporary protection systems as part of renewals work. For UTX’s we have installed both ducted systems and sleeper UTX products.
Walkways and access point construction
We have constructed lineside walkways and ballast retaining structures, designed and built walking routes in depots/sidings and also constructed macadam pathways and access routes. We have built or enhanced access points and created vehicular access or safe pedestrian access points to access line side.
Platform and Station works including ticket booths, ticket machines and station ticket barriers
We undertake work to platform copers and platform surfacing, work to canopies and external works relating to the car park area, access ramps, steps/stairs and entrances to the station. We have also supported all civil work in connection with installing tickets booths, ticket machines and automatic station ticket barriers.
Macadam Works /External works – The bulk of our work had been in forming access roads and surfacing of these roads. We have also undertaken black top and surfacing to car parks and compound areas.
Civils and P-way works
Depots and sidings – We have undertaken upgrade and overhaul works in depots and sidings completing track renewals, buffer stop replacements and all aspects of civils and concreting works including hardstanding and maintenance bays and compound storage facilities etc
Primarily this is work for new projects creating enhanced access routes and compound facilities to mobilise site accommodation facilities and the like. Work entails excavation and site levelling, laying of type 1 material and tarmac, fencing, drainage and lighting to create a fully functioning facility.
Typically provided for management of worksites and compounds during Construction phase, we will provide a fully managed security service with SIA approved security guards and fully monitored mobile CCTV system.
We have upgraded road access routes for the maintainer but also designed and installed stepped pedestrian access ways and lineside refuge areas. We have designed and constructed concrete and metal fabricated stepped accesses.
We have deployed gangs undertaking timber close boarded and Pallisade fencing, both for gated access and secure compound facilities and lineside fencing as well as hand-railing and disabled access and the like at stations.
Sound protection systems
Principally this has been noise suppression screens and temporary work systems running alongside the railway to enable major works and protect lineside neighbours.
Concrete hardstanding, civils structures, bases, retaining walls and any other reinforced concrete structure.
Planning and delivering full Track Renewals
The team have spent a proportion of their careers delivering track renewals for major Contractors (and formally British Rail). We have a blend of experience that allows us to be self sufficient in managing principally plain line track work. This includes technical track engineering capability and site delivery experience (planning and implementing the works including track design and logistics/road and rail haulage).
Packages of TOC
taking over certificate, handback and snagging works (track renewals and civils works) – We have provided a service to primarily our Principal Contractor clients completing the follow up work or site snagging activities to facilitate the taking over certificate and handback of any renewals and projects site back in to operation.
Surveying and Datum Plating
We have deployed survey teams to install datum plating and complete and return as-built and data/survey measurements
