Rapid response for time-sensitive projects
When Carillion Rail was let down by the company that was due to be supplying 40 support workers to help install a new platform extension in just three days' time, they called us for help and we stepped into the breach and provided the necessary skilled contractors within just a few hours.
The entire project ran like clockwork, and Carillion Rail were so impressed with our service that we have been awarded a national labour framework
Carillion was due to complete the installation at Elstree & Boreham Wood station in Hertfordshire for Network Rail. The new module had been pre-cast in Germany and was due to arrive later that week with a team of German assemblers who would erect the structure over the weekend. But the problem was the company who was supplying the support workers, including site safety controllers, skilled crane controllers and track operatives, suddenly announced they could not fill the positions, putting the entire job in jeopardy.
We pride ourselves on offering a rapid response for time-sensitive projects and so, after a few hours on the phone, we had 40 skilled contractors lined up and ready for induction when the module arrived two days later.
PTS Card registered
All of the candidates on our database are Personal Track Safety (PTS) Card registered and ready to work track-side, so we were able to send the names, telephone numbers and all-important PTS registration details straight over to the project manager.
Huge nationwide database
The entire project ran like clockwork, and Carillion Rail were so impressed with our service that we have been awarded a national labour framework contract that allows us to supply labour to Carillion Rail on any of their projects around the country.
We have already been asked to supply the labour for the Great Eastern Electrification Project, the Bletchley Re-signalling Project and the Thames Link Project – so we will be making great use of our huge nationwide database of skilled and experienced rail contractors located around the country. Going by current projections, we will be supplying more than 200 people each week to work on these three projects alone.
When you find yourself between a rock and a hard place, we are perfectly placed to dig you out of trouble, providing the labour you need at the shortest notice to preserve your reputation and get the job done to your usual standards without any delays or hitches.
