Steve King

Rail Asset Development Ltd are a small group of specialists headed by Steve King, Director and supported by Jim Todd, Associate.

Steve has worked in general construction and rail for 30 years, covering a broad range of projects from listed buildings, general refurbishments and new build. These have covered residential, health, retail and commercial property, and also covered both design and construction.

For the last 15 years Steve has concentrated on rail projects and general construction projects with a rail interface, reducing risks by making appropriate early decisions and working closely with the Infrastructure Protection or Asset Protection team and other stakeholders such as asset owners and operational staff. He would then navigate schemes through the required railway approvals and assurance processes and on to site delivery and handover.

Sample projects include:

  • HVM security works at seven Network Rail managed stations
  • Shell and core work for the London Overground depot buildings at New Cross Gate
  • A major mixed-use development at Camden adjacent to both NR and LUL railway lines
  • A new £275m office development over an LUL station in central London
  • Network Rail CEM or LUL Technical Reviewer for over 25 projects over the last 10 years
