Civil Engineering

With established national Civils frameworks, we have been able to develop a skilled, dedicated and dynamic workforce and project management teams, supported by key supply chain partners to ensure the successful delivery of our planned and reactive workbank portfolio.

Our expertise extends from project inception through to completion, which ensures that our early contractor’s involvement leads to buildable, efficient and maintainable solutions.

Our core Civils disciplines include:

  • Rock cutting stabilisation
  • Earthworks
  • Drainage improvements
  • Catch fences
  • Retaining walls
  • Bridge refurbishment and reconstruction
  • Scour Repairs
  • Masonry and Structural Repairs
  • Waterproofing
  • Steelwork repairs
  • Vegetation management
  • DDA Access works
  • Modular Buildings installation
  • Drainage and culvert clearance/ surveys and associated remedial works

Our value engineering ethos and ‘best for project’ approach is at the heart of every project we deliver. With our intrinsic site knowledge and delivery expertise, we strive to identify alternatives based on performance specification rather than theoretical calculations, an approach that allows us to develop design solutions tailored to the specific site conditions and avoid over-engineering.

Our extensive experience, detailed understanding of stakeholder’s expectations and extended specialist plant fleet allows our project management and delivery teams to devise unique methodologies minimising reliance on possessions without compromising safety of the operational railway.

By adopting an honest and collaborative working relationship with our Clients, we identify any potential issues early and provide recommendations for a suitable solution to avoid any unnecessary costs and delays.

With in-house quality assurance (including CEMs and CREs), HSQE, possession planning, safety critical and isolations personnel, we are able to plan and implement all aspects of project delivery without relying on external sources.

Due to varying nature of our contracts from large multi-disciplinary and complex schemes (e.g. RCDP CP5 Earthworks & Coastal Defences Scotland) to extensive portfolios of smaller items (as demonstrated through our various Civils Maintenance Contracts nationally), our delivery teams are extremely versatile and we are able to tailor our delivery approach to meet our Client specific requirements and expectations. Despite different delivery strategies, our entire workforce is fully engaged in our safety commitment and initiatives, which ensures we deliver a consistent approach throughout QTS.
