Civil Engineering

As one of the UK’s most innovative rail civil engineering contractors, BCM are always looking at new and improved ways of working.

BCM apply the latest civil engineering techniques to minimise the environmental impact of our work, setting the standard when it comes to a progressive civil engineering mindset. We pride ourselves in taking on some of the UK’s most demanding rail civil engineering projects. Rather than being intimidated by a demanding project, our engineers relish the opportunity to find a creative, practical and cost-effective solution.

No job is too complex and with a broad base of expertise within a variety of civil engineering disciplines, our in-house railway civil engineers have a track record of success with the design, management and execution of a range of challenging projects.

BCM offers a comprehensive design and build solution and has developed national delivery teams that have completed small projects from foundation bases to large-scale platform reconstruction works.

Our rail civil engineering contracting works typically include:

  • Platform extensions (traditional block and fill, cross wall and beams and modular)
  • Cable containment
  • Under Track Crossings (UTXs)
  • Embankment stabilisation
  • Under/Overbridge Works
  • Tunnels
  • Earthworks
  • Property repairs
  • Sea wall repair works

Civil Engineering CASE STUDIES

Crossrail Platform Extensions

Scheme: Crossrail Location: Anglia Route

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 element of the Anglia section of project including extending platforms, along with other rail civils such as equipment and column bases, fencing and embankment stabilisation works. Working with Principal Rail Contractor Costain, BCM were faced with a challenging site with multiple contractor interfaces and a compressed delivery programme.

Great Western Electrification Substations

Scheme: Great Western Electrification Project (GWEP) Location: Great Western Railway (Specifically Reading to Bristol)

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.
