In 2011 the Company made a decision to diversify into working within the rail industry.
As part of this process it was crucial for us to gain a Principal Contractors Licence which we achieved in 2012.
Since then we are now on several frameworks and are undertaking a wide range of projects within the rail sector.
The key to the success of this sector of the business has been recognising the company’s strengths and growing steadily and organically. A significant amount of time and finances has been put into the rail division which has allowed us to develop it further and we now have an extensive bank of PTS trained staff, with competencies including :-
- Controller of Site Safety (COSS)
- Safe Work Leader (SWL)
- Safe System of Work Planner (SSOWP)
- PDSW Authorising Authority (PDSW AA)
- Industry Common Induction (ICI)
In addition, we are strong adopters of Network Rails manifesto “everyone home safe every day”. We are passionate about keeping our workforce safe and healthy at all times and hold a Health and Safety System accreditation to OHSAS 18001: 2007 and RISQS. We are committed to close engagement with our employees, stakeholders and the public at all levels, to further enhance our safety culture, systems and processes.
Our work on the frameworks over the past 4 years have given us a wealth of experience within the rail sector and have worked on a wide range of contracts which include :-
- Major Structures
- Overbridges & Underbridges
- Retaining Walls
- Station Refurbishments
- Depot/Platform Improvements
- Level Crossing Upgrades
- Geotechnical Works
