BCM Construction won the Thameslink Minor Civils Framework Contract to design and execute lineside engineering activities to facilitate the installation of other contractors’ equipment.
BCM Construction were hired by Network Rail to survey electrical assets along with installing ramp end shrouding and replacing lugs on jumper cables. These works took place between London Victoria Station to Balham Station, North Dulwich to Eastfeild and Earlswood to Preston Park.
The objective of the overall project is to improve system resilience and prevent further equipment failures between Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells which have been caused by the introduction of 12-car electric train formations to Tunbridge Wells.
This project was part of the well-known Great Western Electrification Programme. BCM were contracted by Network Rail to Design and Install a HV Independent Feeder cable between the new substations at Royal Wootton Bassett ATFS and Thingley Junction ATFS.
Crossrail is a multi billion pound transport infrastructure scheme, delivering a new 118-kilometre (73-mile) railway line to London and the Home Counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Essex. In 2015, BCM were awarded a prestigious contract to complete the civil engineering
In 2014, BCM fought off stiff competition to secure a five-year framework on behalf of Network Rail Infrastructure Projects (NR), to deliver electrification and plant upgrades and renewals in the Southern region.
BCM delivered an extension and phased regeneration of Platforms 1 and 2 including a new overbridge, canopy and commercial unit installation at Clapham Junction. The works were adjacent to the operational railway and the platforms were open to the public during the works. With Clapham being the busiest train movement station in the UK, BCM developed an innovative materials distribution solution at the adjacent viaduct and conducted a meticulous programme of material and plant deliveries, whilst co-ordinating with all relevant project stakeholders.
In September 2015, Rail Civil Engineering Contractor – BCM – were awarded a significant substation civils project on Network Rail’s Great Western Electrification infrastructure project on the lines between Reading and Bristol stations.
These works form part of the wider Great Western Route Modernisation, which involves complex infrastructure works, new trains and service changes. These aim to improve services along the rail route, which connects London with West and South West England and South Wales.
Following previous successful contracts with Alstom, BCM delivered the most compelling offer for the civil engineering scope of the railway signalling renewal scheme for the Great Western Electrification project.
The contract was let to BCM on a design and install basis, for the civil engineering elements of the project, covering a geographical work scope of nearly 300 miles of track between Paddington and Bristol stations, including some branch lines.
BCM’s rail environmental services division has devoted teams in place, many with over 20 years’ experience, having dedicated their careers to delivering a long-term contract on the rail infrastructure.
The specialist division prides itself on its unique methodology developed over two decades of committed service to the rail environmental services sector and has established techniques and equipment that enable them to deal with the removal of graffiti and clearing of litter promptly, primarily working on this long term contract with Network Rail as a Principal Contractor.
