Global Rail Construction and TfL continue their collaboration
Global Rail Construction Ltd, the UK rail infrastructure contractor, has secured Lot 4 on behalf of Transport for London (TfL), a contract which forms part of its five-year Station Works Improvement Programme (SWIP).
The company is a principal contractor for UK mainline and metro railways across a number of disciplines, which include signalling, mechanical, electrical and power (MEP), telecoms, civil and structural engineering, maintenance, renewal and provides a fully tested and commissioned service on both Network Rail and TfL controlled infrastructure.
This represents the third success for Global Rail Construction from four lots tendered for, in conjunction with TfL’s proposed £330m stations upgrade programme framework, which will bring improvements to over seventy stations on TfL’s infrastructure.
Lot 4 includes electrical works to the stations and can include multiple packages of works at various locations. Managing Director at Global Rail Construction, Marco Lombardelli said:
“Being able to offer either sector-specific services or a fully managed turnkey solution across a range of activities, including project management, allows Global Rail Construction to specialise in the design, installation, commissioning and testing of railway critical infrastructure.
“Global Rail Construction’s in-house expertise and flexible management approach, based on decades of engineering and delivering solutions, has resulted in this further success.
“We are successfully delivering a range of projects on TfL’s infrastructure and are delighted that TfL has rewarded our innovative approach to this framework.”
The framework agreement, which is for an initial five years, and could be extended by three more years, was let by TfL to give smaller specialist contractors greater freedom to value engineer and innovate.
Global Rail Construction is expecting mobilisation for these works to commence shortly.
