Concrete troughing:
We have supplied and laid miles of all types of pre cast concrete troughing on various projects. This includes reduced weight troughs, transition, T and radius troughs to suit the design and site conditions.
Specialist troughing:
We have recently completed a two-year project on the Thameslink project installing specialist fabricated TTS troughing to accommodate the increased quantities of cabling, working around restricted and limited access to the work site. Not limited to this we have supplied and installed GRC, GRP and other specialist steel troughing and cable routes.
We have completed many building projects from track side to platform work, buildings such as substation buildings, platform lift motor rooms, platform lift shafts and platform buildings. During 2014/2015 we completed lift shafts, lift motor rooms and an office building at new Cross Gate station, London. The platform work is delivered around an operational station, working nights, weekends and creating a high street environment so that work can be carried out when the station is open.

We can deliver platform surfacing and off track surfacing, whether hand lay or machine laid.
We can supply and install kee klamp hand railing, galvanised palisade fencing and GRP fencing.
Cable management:
We can supply and install cable management in the form of cable tray or cable ladder in various sizes and materials including galvanised steel, plastic and GRP so that cables can be run vertically and horizontally to the desired location.
Sign installation:
We have delivered numerous sign installation projects working to tight deadlines with restricted access to plan and work around. During Christmas 2014 we installed 350 signs on the Thameslink project in 14 days.
