Efficiently designing and delivering enhancements and renewals on our railways relies on open, collaborative partners. At Octavius, our people focus on building trusted relationships at every touchpoint.
We use our excellent construction skills, project management and communication to help customers meet complex and demanding programmes and budgets. We challenge standards to innovate and release efficiencies while keeping everyone moving and working safely on the rail network.
Technical expertise combined with small team structures means that customers benefit from better ideas, greater control, and a more responsive project team.
Station & Depot
Station and depot enhancements and renewals must be designed and executed with passengers and operational staff at the heart of the solution. From a ticket office refurbishment to a wheel-wash facility to a new build station, the focus is on continued safe reliable operation of the railway and delivering value.
Through meticulous planning and fully integrated processes involving designers and our supply partners we deliver structural repairs, strengthening schemes, replacements and new structures that meet the diverse needs of all stakeholders.
Electrification and Plant
Our E&P team are agile, capable, and experienced. We work closely with the network maintainers and our specialist suppliers to ensure every upgrade or renewal is well planned and efficiently designed and executed. Maintaining safe operation of the railway and keeping passengers moving is always at the forefront of every E&P project.
Delivering projects on or around the live operational railway requires an absolute respect for the unique environment that is presented. This respect is never more evident than in our multi-disciplinary teams that will work openly in collaboration to deliver complex track infrastructure works. These may be a planned project, emergency works or part of a parent project such as a platform extension or deck replacement.
We deliver, multi-disciplinary and reactive and planned maintenance term frameworks for all types of lineside earthworks, drainage, and structures, for train operating companies and Network Rail. Long term successful relationships with these customers are nurtured through an open, collaborative partnering approach, meeting sector demands for ever greater efficiency, safety, and reliability of delivery.
Our experience covers the refurbishment of offices, buildings and railway arches owned by Network Rail or other private companies. Our consultative approach is driven by understanding our customers’ objectives. Solutions combine our construction and engineering expertise with innovation to deliver successful and cost efficient projects.
