BCM Construction were awarded the Principal Contractors role for the Design and Construction of the full civil engineering scope of works for the Feltham Resignalling Project Phase 2 and residual Phase 1. This multi-disciplinary project covers over 60 miles in total.
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
The primary objective of this scheme is to ensure that there is sufficient DC traction power across Network Rail’s (NR) Sussex Route to meet the demands of the new December 2018 timetable, which will include a newer fleet and more frequent trains, all in accordance with the requirements of the Department of Transport’s (DTT) strategic plan.
In 2016, BCM were awarded a contract by Network Rail to complete the Electrical Track Equipment (ETE) works from Victoria to Balham. Working as their Principal Rail Contractor, BCM have faced a challenging access regime within these inner London sites, working on some of the busiest and most congested lines in the UK.
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.
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.
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.
