Rail Asset Development Ltd was founded in 2018 to offer design and delivery support for those who are developing on or around railway land.
In our first six months, we provided support to one of the largest housing associations in London, a ‘top 5’ national contractor, a ‘top 5’ house builder and a ‘top 20’ engineering consultancy as well as smaller developers and builders with one-off schemes.
Since then we have gone on to work on projects from Kent to the Lake District, and Exeter to Cambridge as we work towards providing a truly national service covering Network Rail, London Underground and London Overground.
Please browse our site (menu at the top left of the screen) to see what we have done for others and can do for your project as well.
Support for those developing on or around the railway can also be flexible to suit your needs. Often these kinds of developments are seen as challenging and risky for the Client and project team and having specialist guidance can provide the confidence to move forward. Whether you are still sketching concepts, or whether you are half way through construction, we can help. We have provided support for projects from £1.5m to £600m.
Within our team we have specialist knowledge of works adjoining or within Network Rail and London Underground environments, and can review your proposals to see how to gain the required approvals in the most pragmatic and effective way. We can highlight areas where changes to materials, methods or scope of a development can remove risk from a scheme and avoid potential delay. With the right approach, it is often possible to reduce the volume of information provided to Network Rail and LUL, but still gain their confidence and approval to the proposals.
We can also provide bid support for construction tenders. Our services can be anything from leading the team to just writing some specific answers – we have experience of preparing and delivering over 2,000 tenders with values from below £100k up to £600m and have an excellent track record of success.
